Injectable Foam Stops Internal Bleeding On The Battlefield
Expanding substance puts pressure on internal injuries until soldiers can receive proper medical attention.
While preventing any type of injury is one of a soldier’s main concerns, it’s often the injuries you can’t see that prove most fatal. Injuries that are accompanied by internal bleeding and hemorrhaging account for nearly 85% of preventable deaths on the battlefield. Hopefully, Arsenal Medical has come up with a solution to help protect the people protecting our country.
Arsenal, in response to a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) initiative called the Wound Stasis Program, has developed an injectable polymer foam to help stem internal bleeding from non-compressible battlefield injuries.
