Z-Medica Provides Bleeding Control Kits to UPMC to be Distributed to Schools in Pennsylvania
Date:3/28/2017

Z-Medica, LLC, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic devices, announces today that the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) will acquire QuikClot® Bleeding Control Kits® (BCK) to equip up to 1,000 schools in Central and Western Pennsylvania.

The program, developed in association with efforts by the American College of Surgeons, U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and the White House national “Stop the Bleed” campaign, ensures the schools in that region align with guidelines established by the Hartford Consensus.

“We are seeing more and more communities coming together and training key personnel to respond to traumatic situations,” says Z-Medica President and CEO Stephen J. Fanning. “Being prepared means first responders on the scene of traumatic events have the tools they need to control bleeding quickly and effectively. Stopping uncontrolled bleeding in those precious minutes can mean the difference between life and death.”

UPMC recently participated in training nearly 200 law enforcement officers in the management of traumatic bleeding injuries and will be working to further the training and provide BCKs to school nurses and resource officers.
