OH no the Controversial QuickClot/Celox again. First my credentials: Civi-side EMT-B; Military Combat Medic (with 2 deployments) Ok my take on QC its use is very dependent on situation/location of wound/complications of wound/location of Pt vs. Location of proper medical treatment/Time. Some on the EDCF are prepared for an apocalypse/zombie take over/Armageddon scenario in which case follow the said directions on the package and manage to the best of your ability, also quite possibly in a remote area say hiking/camping/hunting but QC is kinda like bondo for humans. If you have worked on cars you understand the reference, its a quick patch job but it takes a lot of work to reverse the patch and correctly fix. IMHO everyone carrying around QC without Medical knowledge/training is similar to giving a monkey a gun, it may work but then again things could go from horrible to F*****d. For the money it sounds like yall are ready to through at this stuff you might just want to take a few classes and pick some brains at a MTF (medical treatment facility) because not only are there specific scenarios this could be used but some other "tricks" that can be used as well to sustain until properly trained, and not to mention insured, folk can arrive and correct the situation. My advice to anyone still wanting to obtain this stuff, and I am by no means condoning or condemning it, please first read the instructions and then seek further knowledge on how to stop bleeding. Claren has said it before and I will add to it "good Samaritan laws stop at poking holes in people" also putting any foreign objects in holes. BE CAREFUL WITH THIS STUFF!!!
