Stop the Bleeding: Hemorrhage Control Products
Hemorrhage Control Products
When EMS teams respond to dire situations, hemorrhage or ‘bleeding’ control products can mean the difference between life and death.
Hemostasis is the name of the process that stops the body from bleeding and repairs the damage inflicted by a wound. Hemostasis is not a single process, but a rather complex group of processes in which the body recruits platelets to initiate coagulation and healing.
After a severe injury, EMS workers rely on different products to stabilize wounds and ensure that people do not suffer excessive hemorrhaging that can lead to death. Simply put, EMS workers need the right bleeding control products ready to deploy at the right time.
