New invention to stop bleeding from gun shot wound.

An Oregon startup has developed a pocket-size device that uses tiny sponges to stop bleeding fast. I have no experience in this field. Looks interesting if it really works.

    Looks interesting. Could be a real life-saver, I'll watch and see if any of it hits the EMS field for civilian use.

    Maybe they could also be used to inject 'sponges ' into politicians mouths when they start speaking. It would help to combat BS.

    ...............Just a thought.............
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Need to remove the "x-ray" marks then, wouldn't want anyone thinking about removing the blockage after all. Just sayin'!

    Maybe this will work better than a tampon and duct tape. :yikes: Later,
