QuikClot® devices are more effective than other standard gauzes

As simple and easy to use as standard gauze, QuikClot® devices, applied with manual pressure, control severe bleeding faster because they contain kaolin.1-5 Kaolin is a mineral known for more than half a century to clot blood.7 Unlike other hemostatic products, QuikClot® devices do not contain animal or human proteins which can trigger allergic reactions that can become additional emergencies.
