QuikClot ACS+™ is the latest Z-Medica product. QuikClot ACS+™ is offered in a delivery system similar to the original QuikClot ACS™ and allows the same ease of application and removal. As a result of intensive research and development, the formulation of QuikClot ACS+™ has been re-engineered to stay cooler on contact. It has a greatly reduced exothermic reaction, with maximum temperatures in vivo typically at 105 degrees F. This cooler formulation was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Marines, with applications beyond the military.
When dealing with large, severe injuries on the battlefield or here at home, a few seconds can mean the difference between losing a limb – or losing a life. When time is critical, just rip open a packet of QuikClot ACS+™, pack the self-contained sponge into the wound and the bleeding stops rapidly. The sponge can be packed to conform to the shape of the wound and is easily removed in the hospital setting.
Each package of QuikClot ACS+™ contains one 3.5-ounce (100g) hemostatic sponge. It is also available in a Z-Medica TraumaPak™, along with a pressure bandage and high volume gauze.
