Wallingford, CT, June 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Global Learning Series,” an education-focused public television distributed program, will feature Z-Medica Corporation’s QuikClot line of hemostatic agents in an upcoming episode called “Understanding Emergency Medicine.”
QuikClot is an easy-to-use gauze dressing which helps accelerate the body’s natural clotting process, achieving hemostasis in as little as three minutes, helping to prevent loss of life and limb. Because QuikClot requires very little training to administer, it can be effectively used by medical personnel and civilians in emergency situations. QuikClot is used by the military, first-responders and medical professionals in the field and in clinical environments such as the emergency room, cardiac catheterization laboratory, interventional radiology and virtually anywhere else where bleeding needs to be controlled.
The “Understanding Emergency Medicine” program will explore the use of QuikClot in a variety of applications, to educate viewers on the versatility of the medical advancement in managing traumatic bleeding. The show will be distributed to “The Global Learning Series” network of public television stations, cable networks and web partners later this year.
“Z-Medica continually earns and exceeds global leadership status in bringing effective and safe control of bleeding to civilians and military personnel throughout the world,” said John McGuire, Executive Producer of Programming for The Global Learning Series. “We applaud Z-Medica’s contribution to the medical community and we are pleased to educate global viewers about the advancements they are making.”
Z-Medica Corporation is a medical device company developing innovative hemostatic agents. The company manufactures and markets its QuikClot® family of products for hemostasis for use by healthcare professionals, first responders, law enforcement officers and the military. QuikClot products rapidly enhance the body’s natural coagulation process, helping to achieve hemostasis faster. Z-Medica’s QuikClot® Combat Gauze™ product was chosen by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) as the United States Military’s sole source supplier for first-line hemostatic treatment, based on tests conducted by the Naval Medical Research Center and the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research. QuikClot® products are also widely used by first responders, in hospital emergency rooms, interventional cardiology and radiology laboratories where bleeding requires fast and effective control. Z-Medica, named one of the Top 100 Technology “Companies to Watch” in 2008 by the Connecticut Technology Council, is a privately-held company based in Wallingford, CT.
