Hemorrhage is associated with the majority of potentially survivabledeaths on the battlefield. Currently, effective and field-tested products are lacking for treatment of junctional and noncompressible injuries. XStat is a newly developed, FDA-approved product designed to treat junctional hemorrhage. The product is composed of minisponges that expand on contact with blood to produce tamponade. The committee ontactical combat casualty care has recently approved the product as part of its guidelines, but data is lacking to assess its efficacy in different injury types or physiologic states. Therefore, we tested XStat and QuikClot Combat Gauze ICG in a model of uncontrolled hemorrhage incoagulopathic swine.
