XStat's Rapid Hemostasis System is a giant syringe filled with pellet-shaped sterile sponges doped with hemostatic agents for squiring directly into shotgungunshot wounds. Within 15 seconds, the sponges absorb blood and expand, staunching the wound.
The sponges themselves are standard medical sponges that were coated with a hemostatic agent and then compressed. Once they come in contact with liquid, they rapidly expand and fill a substantially larger volume than their compressed state. Besides helping block blood flow, the sponges also provide a surface on which blood can begin clotting. Because the sponges have to be eventually removed, each has a tiny radiopaque marker so that any remaining in the body can be spotted on X-ray
Remember back to the time when people thought java was just a hip way to talk about coffee? Or you vaguely remembered from geography class that it’s an island in the South Pacific? We’ve come a long way since then and now that we’ve rocket blasted into the tech future, you’re going to need to […]
Plastic is so 2013. You don’t want to buy something only to throw it away or lose it and barely care. You like nice things and want to hang onto them. The Plazmatic lighter here is a high quality, high tech alternative to the typical cheap, plastic lighter you get at the old gas station. […]
Real engineers build things. Super cool engineers build things with their hands and fingers, like our engineering forefathers did. No idea where to even begin to do that? This step by step Arduino course is now 92% off and is going to get you up and running, from zero to hero, in no time. So […]
