Tending to the wounded, especially soldiers who suffer from everything from gunshot to bomb injuries, is a test for even the most skilled doctors, so anything that can make their job easier is welcomed; enter the XStat by RevMedx. It is a special syringe that injects pellets into the open wound. These pellets expand into specially coated sponges that stop bleeding more efficiently and effectively that traditional methods.

More than that, the XStat by RevMedx reduces the pain of such procedures dramatically. Lightweight and less bulky than the rolls of gauze doctors are used to carrying around, the XStat by RevMedx is an improvement all around. It is waiting an approval from the FDA even though the U.S. Army had given the team $5 million to develop a finished product.
