Z-Medica Launches New Line of Hemostatic Agents for use in Emergency Medical Services

WALLINGFORD, Conn., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Z-Medica, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic agents, announced today it has launched the first-ever line of products designed to meet the unique needs of Emergency Medical Services. The line includes QuikClot® EMS 4x4 Dressing, QuikClot® EMS TraumaPad®, and QuikClot® EMS Rolled Gauze™, all custom-designed to help responders stop bleeding fast and keep patients alive until they can be transported to a hospital or trauma center. The line includes products designed and packaged for faster deployment and more efficient inventory management for EMS centers.

Each product can be used to control bleeding associated with a wide range of needs found in EMS settings including car accidents, assaults, workplace or at-home injuries, falls and other events leading to cuts or lacerations. Now in their third generation, QuikClot products in the new EMS line are infused with kaolin, a mineral that has been clinically shown to initiate the body's natural coagulation cascade, rapidly accelerating the clotting process without causing any exothermic reaction.

"Blood loss from traumatic injury causes approximately 50,000 deaths a year in the United States alone," said Doug Kay , Director of Marketing for Z-Medica. "We are launching this new line of products to help ensure the first people to arrive on the scene of an accident have the resources they need to stop bleeding fast and save lives."

To help EMS teams manage inventory better, the line of QuikClot® EMS products will be distributed with fewer units in smaller packages compared to those typically found in a hospital or military setting. For example, QuikClot® EMS 4x4 Dressing will be offered in packs of three rather than five, and QuikClot® EMS Rolled Gauze™ will be 4-foot instead of standard 12-foot rolls. The smaller packaging also provides better value at a time when many EMS teams are facing significant budget pressure. 

"EMS providers across the country are facing budget issues and an increase in the number of calls," said Robert Huebner , Director of Pre-Hospital Programs for Z-Medica. "Our new line of QuikClot® EMS Products can alleviate some of these issues, with products specifically sized and priced to meet the most common hemostasis needs in EMS settings."

The EMS Family of Products will be sold through a world-class team of authorized Z-Medica resellers. In addition, Z-Medica will launch an online training program for EMS personnel that will be available this summer.
