And while ER docs hate it, Quick Clot or BloodStop or similar powder that forms an instant scab and seals a wound. If someone has a wound and it is appropriate to simply get it stopped and sealed, these powders work very nicely. Of course in the ER they're all upset because they have to wash it off before they can see the wound, but hey, that's life.
