Using Chitosan, an extract from shrimp shells, HemCon Bandages control moderate to severe external bleeding within minutes of being applied directly to moderate- or high-pressure, high-flow external bleeds. They aggressively adhere to the site on contact with blood or moisture. This adhesive-like action forms a strong, flexible barrier that seals and stabilizes the wound.

HemCon Bandages, used by the U.S. military since 2003, have been 97% effective at controlling bleeding on the battlefield. In 2005, the Army Surgeon General mandated that any soldier serving in Iraq or Afghanistan carry at least one HemCon Bandage.
