  • I've heard the Quickclot Pharmacy rep-- we do not use it at all occasionally the OR will use it)

    Honestly I've never in 11 years seen any used in the emergency setting we use sutures, we use cocaine, and of course courtery (thats burning the bleeder) silver nitrate too (less often)
    and personal exp at home both my kids have von willebrands disease and I was advised by a world class expert hematologist to never use that stuff
