Manufacturer Z-Medica Corp Cites First Responder For Saving Life of

Motorcycle Accident Victim with Severed Femoral Artery

WALLINGFORD, Conn., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Executives of Z-Medica Corporation (Z-Medica) today presented the company's 2007 Francis X. Hursey Award to Rockland Paramedic Services (RPS) Medic 21 member John McCullough for his heroic use of its breakthrough QuikClot(R) 1st Response(TM) brand hemostatic agent to save the life of a motorcycle accident victim with a torn femoral artery. The Hursey Award -- a presentation sculpture and a $1000 check to the recipient's charity of choice -- is presented annually to, "the civilian first responder who best exemplifies the Z-Medica creed: The greatest privilege is to make a difference." It is named for Frank Hursey, the discoverer of QuikClot(R) who, with Z-Medica CEO Raymond J. Huey, made the presentation to McCullough before an audience of officials of Orangetown, New York, where the accident occurred, members of the public, representatives of RPS, and the woman whose life was saved -- now recovered. Her appearance drew tears and applause from the room as her fiancee had been killed instantly.

When paramedic McCullough arrived at the May 2007 accident scene, he observed the victim with a life-threatening injury involving a tear of the femoral artery. A tourniquet applied by bystanders was not working.

Calling on his training, McCullough applied QuikClot(R) 1st Response(TM) to the wound, and immediately stopped the arterial bleeding. Stabilized, the victim was airlifted to the Westchester Medical Center Trauma Center in Valhalla, New York. According to RPS, the Westchester trauma team attributed the victim's survival and good outcome to paramedic McCullough's intervention with QuikClot.

"We applaud John McCullough and Rockland Paramedic Services for providing the citizens in its coverage area with the latest and most effective blood clotting technology," s
