This is a fantastic product that will certainly help save lives. I have an coagulating polymer spray that may also have great potential. We developed it during the begin of the Iraq war but project lost focus after Mr. Rumsfield left office. I would like to explore this technology with experts in the field and possibly sell to license this technology. Please visit http://www.hydromer.com/massivebleed/massivewoundspray.pdf
