QuikClot 1st Response™ is the latest Z-Medica product for first responders, environmental health & safety teams and industrial nurses. It is the same proven technology developed for the military, packaged for convenient use by first responders, to help save lives right at the scene of accidents, crimes, fires and other emergencies.
Just like the ACS+ (latest product for the military), QuikClot 1st Response™ has been re-engineered to remain cooler on contact. It has a greatly reduced exothermic reaction, with maximum temperatures in vivo typically at 105 degrees F. Unlike any other QuikClot product though, the 1st Response line has a blue x-ray identifier so the QuikClot is visible in x-rays.
QuikClot 1st Response™ is easy to use. Just rip open a packet, pack the self-contained sponge into the wound and the bleeding stops rapidly. For larger wounds, use more than one sponge. The sponges will conform to the shape of the wound. QuikClot 1st Response™ is easily removed in the hospital setting.
QuikClot 1st Response™ 25g comes in a box that contains five individually packaged 25g hemostatic sponges – quantities sufficient to address most situations encountered by first responders.
Per regulation, buyers must have a minimum of 40 hours of basic American Red Cross training or equivalent.
