What problems are "they" having with Quikclot? Which version is it, the military or the civilian version? I have used both and have both in my gun shot wound kit. The combat version is gauze that is meant to pack into a gunshot wound. It even has a silver thread in it so that it is not accidently left in the wound, as it shows up pretty clear on an x-ray. The civi version is just a sponge and is meant for topical wound treatment. Quikclot says that training is required for the combat version.
