Law Enforcement

As the first on the scene to any accident or disaster, law enforcement officials are the first point of care for victims. QuikClot® hemostasis products now put life-saving technology into the hands of law enforcement officials, giving them the power to treat severe traumatic bleeding and to save lives.

QuikClot products have been proved in the toughest conditions, on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. Used extensively throughout all branches of the US Military, QuikClot products have saved hundreds of lives and have been chosen by the CoTCCC (Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care) as the only choice for hemostatic agent. This groundbreaking and life-saving technology is now available to Law Enforcement.

QuikClot products are safe, with no known contraindications and contain no animal or human proteins. They are simple and easy to use, yet extremely effective in controlling severe bleeding, keeping patients alive until they can treated by EMS or transported to a hospital or trauma center. QuikClot products are a small investment that could mean the difference between life and death.
