QuikClot Combat Gauze® XL is a 2-ply, 10 cm x 3,6 meter strip of soft, white, nonwoven, hydrophilic gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inorganic mineral that is both safe and effective in accelerating the body's natural clotting cascade without any exothermic reactions or use of animal or human proteins.
QuikClot Combat Gauze® XL contains an X-ray detectable strip for easy identification.
Each QuikClot Combat Gauze® is packaged in an easy-tear pouch, vacuum sealed and has five year expiration.
Tailored to the needs of combat and tactical medical personnel, QuikClot Combat Gauze combines surgical gauze with a proprietary inorganic material that stops arterial and venous bleeding in seconds – even more rapidly in this format than earlier Z-Medica products. Based on a different mineral than zeolite-based QuikClot products, it generates no heat. It shares the benefit of being inert and non-allergenic.
Combat Gauze provides the ease of gauze but with an added clotting agent embedded within providing the power to stop even the worst arterial and venous bleeding. The user simply packs the Combat Gauze dressing into the wound just as they have been taught in any basic first aid class over the years, and applies pressure for 3-5 minutes. Even the most traumatic arterial and venous bleeding is stopped. QuikClot Combat Gauze is so pliable that it conforms to virtually any size or shape of injury you will encounter. It is easily removed once clotting has taken place.
