When a massive injury occurs, and there’s bleeding involved, time is essential. Often times, emergency medical personnel are on-scene, but have little recourse to do more than get you somewhere else quickly. A place that has the equipment necessary to help you get through the trauma and (hopefully) live. A new syrum, named VetiGel, could change that. The plant-based material can be affixed to human tissue to stop bleeding rapidly. It’s not yet widely available, but is being trialled at veterinary clinics.
