Summary: Final paper of the TVF&R abstract and poster presentation. Demonstrates how the HemCon® Bandage can be successfully incorporated into the civilian EMS system.
The chitosan-based HemCon Bandage is beneficial in stopping uncontrolled external hemorrhage when traditional methods such as pressure and gauze fail. Proper training in the use of the bandage is essential because user error was a contributing factor in most of the documented failures.Link to Study
