Sonya-

Welcome to sailnet, but chances are pretty likely that they've all bled out already... the posts you're responding to are FIVE years old.

Please read this post to help get the most out of sailnet. :)

True, but I don't think the OP is aware of the age of the thread or other posts.

BTW, one thing to be careful of with the "Quik Clot" is that it generates a fair amount of heat IIRC.

In terms of treatment, compression bandages (ace bandages) are also very useful in treating bleeders, as is elevation. I would avoid the injections, unless you have the medical training to do it properly, since you can make the situation worse.

I'm not sure if it is QuikClot or one of the other brands...but it is a powder, and the way it works causes it to generate a fair amount of heat, so you have to apply it properly...
