Using this was a life saving maneuver.

I remembered seeing a CNN report on a new hemostatic dressing used by the military in Iraq. I wanted to try it for an 80-year-old patient for whom standard hemostatic agents did not work for longer than 24 hours. I met [the rep] there, practically ran to the patient’s bedside, and applied the HemCon® bandage. The bleeding stopped immediately. It was like a scene from out of a movie. Just using this little piece of HemCon® Bandage was a life-saving maneuver.
