Great news on the Quickclot gauze vs powder...I will revise what I tell people and might just add some to the kit.
I have seen a few folks flown into our trauma bay with the powder and it was a mess in the wound...and yeah the main folks complaining were the trauma dr's
Personally I am all for direct pressure but I can see when & where a clotting agent would be good to have.
Thanks Sun for the more indepth response than what I wrote, I think the fact that EMS is often under the license of a Dr is often overlooked.
For me it is less about my Duty to Act than it is about how I would feel if I could have helped and didn't.
