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.
