it immediatly sucks all of the water from your blood
the way we learnt it it doenst suck up the water, it reacts with the water, to creat heat. my busted open package worked real well to kill some bugs that got into our tent when it flooded one time. then my ipod fell into a small lagoon and died, then was reincarnated, but the battery doesnt work anymore.

Sorry, you're mistaken...

It withdraws all moisture from application site, the rationale is that it often leaves raw clotting product (thrombin, platelets, etc) at the bleed.

The heat comes from it's mechanism of action...The rapid removal of the moisture causes an "exothermic" reaction, thus producing heat...Many people are mistaken thinking that quick clot was designed to cauterize wounds...It's not..The heat is a side effect.

Best way I have heard to deal with a wound when you have no medical supplies is to pee on it. Fresh urine is sterile and will clean the wound. Ya won't smell good, but it beats the alternative.

It doesn't control hemorrhage

When you're in the field...Unless you are MILES and HOURS from help, controlling the bleeding is sufficient.

The GSW victim will get a TON of IV Ancef (anitbiotic) when they get patched up at the Trauma unit/Hospital.

Peeing on a wound is pretty extreme.

"Best way I have heard to deal with a wound when you have no medical supplies is to pee on it."

What if we're talking about a head wound? Where's that gunpowder at?!


So, from what I gather, in no way under any circumstance should anyone be trying to seal a wound by lighting gunpowder. Point noted. I guess massive bleeding is just turned into massive internal bleeding if sealed up via the gunpowder method.
