    Quikclot: Civilian vs Combat Gauze?

    What is the difference between the “civilian” versions of Quikclot to the military and law enforcement versions aside from the xray strip and packaging? Is the civilian versions just as effective as the others?

    I think those are the only differences. I’ve used both on the ambulance with equal effectiveness from my perspective.

    That’s how I understand it as well.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Remember:

    Tourniquets are for extremities

    Quikclot is to plug holes

    Dressings cover wounds and holes

    Bandaids have a place for minor stuff and are often forgotten these days.

    Go online, do a search for “Stop the Bleed” training. And after that take a first aid or wilderness first aid class from Red Cross, American Heart Assn or ASHI.

    Toys don’t mean shit without training. That especially applies to medical stuff.
