OK, so that would not be an easily marketable name for this technology, but it does get the point across. I have a few ideas regarding this blood clotting agent:

1. Is impregnating the entire pad wise? With its adhesiveness, wouldn't there be the potential damage from removing the bandage when it has been incorporated into the clot? I would think that a film on top of the bandage would be safer.

2. Consider the attractiveness of this technology for hemophiliacs. While it obviously can do no good for internal bleeding, at least without surgery, open lacerations would be aided immensely.

3. I wonder if there had been any folk rememdies using ground shrimp shells or insect carapaces. Could be something for the really-hardcore survivalist to remember.
