Given the rise of chitosan-based gauze and the efficacy of the QuikClot family of gauze products, the gain in space savings from these types of gauze(s) over the traditional counterparts like the Israeli or Oales has me thinking about what/why I would still carry something old-school. Why would one still carry an old school gauze bandage or kerlix over the modern hemostatic? Is cost the only factor? How much bleeding does the average hemostatic gauze package stop before being overwhelmed? Is there any field studies or side by side comparisons on something like a GSW and the efficacy of a Israeli vs a packet of Quikclot Combat Gauze LE? This is the video that has kind of started my thinking on this.
