XStat® device for the treatment of gunshot and shrapnel wounds
This looks to be a interesting product. The FDA has recently approved the XStat device for traumatic and penetrating wounds. The device appears to be particularly useful in treating deep gashes that are difficult to manage with a tourniquet.
The device has been cleared for use in severe hemorrhagic shock and non-compressible junctional wounds. It contains a collection of small sponges that act as a temporary barrier to blood flow. Each applicator can absorb up to a pint of blood.
This looks to be a promising new tool. Read more at the manufacturer website.
