Emergency Trauma Dressing
These things are AMAZING. I have used them twice. Once on myself, head wound (Plumbing accident) Bleeding profusely, alone. I put the ETD on and had to finish what I was doing. Went to the Urgent Care unit about an hour later. When they took it off, there was virtually no blood on the pad. Bleeding had to have stopped basically instantly. When they checked me, they said that I had responded quickly enough that there was essentially nothing more they could do. They cleaned me, glued me up & sent me home. The other time was at work (I work in a machine shop) A guy sliced his hand, I put an ETD on him & got him to the ER. Again almost no additional blood, but when they took the ETD off, the blood vessel started oozing again and it took over an hour to stop the bleeding their way. Especially given the price, these are my go-to short of a tourniquet.
