On the battlefield, a penetrating injury from shrapnel can quickly lead to haemorrhaging, excessive blood loss and death. It is difficult for medics to stop the bleeding from this type of injury, as it can take time to find each shrapnel wound and clamp it off – time that is not always available in a battle situation. Now, a team from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University have therefore developed a new way to quickly stop haemorrhaging from shrapnel wounds – using an ingredient commonly found in filled pastries.
