Urban Survival Essential Medical Item – Quik Clot

Z-Medica offers the QuikClot brand products which are sponge type bandages or gauze, composed of an inert mineral substance-hemostatic agent that rapidly stops even severe bleeding. The ability to stop bleeding is essential for the Urban Survivor when medical services are greatly reduced or non-existent.

The Company decribes QuikClot as a hemostatic agent ins a molecular sieve, sifting molecules by size. When QuikClot comes into contact with blood in and around a wound, it rapidly takes in the smaller water molecules from the blood. The larger platelet and clotting factor molecules remain in the wound in a highly concentrated form. This promotes extremely rapid natural clotting and prevents severe blood loss. Additionally, the engineered particles provide key surface chemistry, rapidly enhancing the body's natural coagulation process. Z-Medica claims this process represents a new approach to hemostasis, which typically involves adding clotting factors rather than extracting elements to halt bleeding

In service with the military, law enforcement and emergency medical providers, QuikClot is a giant step forward in the ability to treat trauma involving potential life threatening blood loss.




QuikClot Combat Gauze provides the ultimate in stopping power for traumatic wounds; requiring no mixing, measuring or heat - just open and apply,. Easy to pack, it stays cool under pressure and remains ultra flexible while conforming to any shape or size wound, and removes easily without effect.





QuikClot 1st Response is the latest Z-Medica product for first responders, environmental health & safety teams and industrial nurses. It is the same proven technology developed for the military, packaged for convenient use by first responders, to help save lives right at the scene of accidents, crimes, fires and other emergencies. As in the latest product for the military, QuikClot 1st Response has been re-engineered to remain cooler on contact. It has a greatly reduced exothermic reaction, with maximum temperatures in vivo typically at 105 degrees F.

QuikClot 1st Response is easy to use. Just rip open a packet, pack the self-contained sponge into the wound and the bleeding stops rapidly. For larger wounds, use more than one sponge. The sponges will conform to the shape of the wound. QuikClot 1st Response is easily removed in the hospital setting.

QuikClot 1st Response comes in a box that contains five individually packaged .875-ounce (25g) hemostatic sponges – quantities sufficient to address most situations encountered by first responders.



QuikClot ACS+ is the latest Z-Medica product. QuikClot ACS+ is offered in a delivery system similar to the original QuikClot ACS and allows the same ease of application and removal. As a result of intensive research and development, the formulation of QuikClot ACS+ has been re-engineered to stay cooler on contact. It has a greatly reduced exothermic reaction, with maximum temperatures in vivo typically at 105 degrees F. This cooler formulation was developed in conjunction with the U.S. Marines, with applications beyond the military.

When dealing with large, severe injuries on the battlefield or here at home, a few seconds can mean the difference between losing a limb – or losing a life. When time is critical, just rip open a packet of QuikClot ACS+, pack the self-contained sponge into the wound and the bleeding stops rapidly. The sponge can be packed to conform to the shape of the wound and is easily removed in the hospital setting.

Each package of QuikClot ACS+ contains one 3.5-ounce (100g) hemostatic sponge. It is also available in a Z-Medica TraumaPak, along with a pressure bandage and high volume gauze.

Urban Man has several personal medical kits as well as a large team medical kit that contains all three QuikClot products mentioned above.

  1. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    Invented by the natives of North America.

    Pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

    These people spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at

    How folks 150 years ago did it!

    These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.
