I teach Combat Lifesaver Course for the Army.
I have become aware that the treatment they currently use is not sufficient. Gauze has to be surgically removed once used. We need something that will not do further harm and can be utilized by the fallen soldiers.
Why is this important to me?
I am very passionate about emergency medicine & teaching soldiers who have zero medical knowledge how to save their wounded battle buddy. They do not always have medics with them to help. So it is up to the CLS trained soldier to must help the wounded until medical help arrives. Approximately 976 soldiers die with potentially survivable wounds, and of those individuals, 888 bled to death.
