    Still, $25 for the 3.5 oz. size is the best i've seen so far...

    Okay, after a couple of PMs, I did revist this thread and take out the potentially dangerous information that was inadvertantly posted. Since many of you quoted the information, I had to do some surgery to get rid of all references to the original post and hopefully got them all. I tried very hard not to change posters words much (and apologize if I did) but felt it was important to remove that information.

    After I was all done, I threw some Quick Clot on the whole thread....

    Vet Wrap

    Guys,

    I have three horses, and tons of vet wrap on and...Being fundamentally opposed to the pink & purple versions, I am happy to report that all of my vet wrap is good ole` basic black.

    Hope that helps.


    Thanks,
    Kerry

    Negative..It draws all H20 from the application site itnot he powder, thus leaving raw thrombin and clotting factors @ the wound site...

    The reaction you cite is what I posted above...It is much liek a super-turbo dry sweep...Absorbs all H20 it hits...

    This is what is known as QC's "exothermic reaction...The H2o is removed so quickly that it causes heat.

    Used properly, on the WOUNDS IT WAS DESIGNED FOR (seen the guy with the femur bleeder in Blackhawk Down?), it is a decnt hem-control goody to have in the blow-out kit.

    Hence to avoid exothermic reaction..Also, it'd suck to be applying it in windy conditions, lest it blow into your eyes...

    It works great - if used as intended.
    People with really crappy wounds love it - surgeons hate it :)

    Not really, but I've had a couple tell me that it's a &$#@&! to clean out.

    The stuff has to be surgically removed, so please do your homework before putting it on a paper-cut.

    It IS part of my EDC, though - coz you never know.

    In my shop's first ad kit we have a spray can of generic "Spray Clotting Agent and Disinfectant". We get it from our local safety equipment supply. I wouldn't use it on a compound fracture with arterial bleeding but it has worked like a charm on some pretty nasty smaller wounds. It dosn't make anything hurt worse after application either. I like it because it's easy to use and then get back to work without having to explain bloody smears on the furniture we're building!
