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.

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.
