Syringes with tiny sponges close soldiers’ gunshot wounds in 15 seconds — The distinction between life and death during combat frequently comes down to a matter of seconds, particularly with regards to those with gunshot wounds. Stopping bleeding usually includes the tedious task of pressing and repacking wounds with gauze. However, a small group of veteran doctors, researchers and engineers at Oregon-based RevMedx have made a pocket-sized syringe, fit for infusing small sponges into wounds. Called the XStat, the gadget’s specially covered wipes are around one centimeter (0.4 inch) in breadth, and grow to fill an injury’s cavity and stop bleeding in only 15 seconds — much faster and more effective than traditional methods.
