Aid to Stop Bleeding Fast

WALLINGFORD, Conn., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Every year in the United States, there are close to 400 million nosebleeds. While many nosebleeds are minor, about 515,000 result in visits to hospital emergency departments(1) -- stressful, time consuming and expensive incidents. Nosebleeds occur most frequently in two age groups, children two to ten years old, and seniors. Z-Medica Corp is now making a difference for mothers and caregivers to these loved ones with QuikClot(R) NoseBleed(TM) brand, a safe and economical new way to stop nasal bleeding.

QuikClot(R) NoseBleed(TM) brand, a gauze packing impregnated with a specially formulated substance that activates factors in blood to promote rapid blood coagulation, comes in an easy to apply and easy to remove format. It has been cleared by the FDA for over-the-counter use by anyone who can follow simple directions.

The packing is rolled or folded to fit into the affected nostril. Once inserted, pressure is applied and the bleeding should stop quickly. The new product is available online at http://www.quikclot.com where the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for a box of five sterile applications is $11.49.

QuikClot(R) NoseBleed(TM) brand is manufactured by Z-Medica Corporation, a medical products company focused on innovative hemostatic nano-technologies. The company manufactures and markets several other life-saving products for use by its original markets -- the military, first responders, industrial first aid teams and law enforcement personnel.
