Similar to the products used by the U.S. Military, QuickClot Sport Silver is a great addition to every first aid kit. QuikClot speeds the coagulation of blood, resulting in a stable clot that stops bleeding and can be left in place until more advanced medical help arrives. Mesh bag keeps granules out of the wound making for easy removal. Ionic silver prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi, ideal for when advanced medical help is far away. Stops bleeding three times faster than blood on its own. Pretreated to prevent burning to wound. Lightweight and easy to pack.
