According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, more than 250,000 children are treated in emergency departments for playground injuries each year. Forty percent of these children come in with a cut or scrape. When a child receives a minor injury, such as a cut or a scrape, parents, teachers or caregivers need to determine if the child needs medical attention. Regardless of depth or severity, most wounds bleed. In the past, you were forced to wrap the wound in some sort of bandage and apply pressure for 5, 10, even 15 minutes. Now for the first time ever, there is a consumer product available that is changing the way we treat wounds, in mere seconds you can now stop bleeding on even the deepest of cuts and scrapes. This product is not just for overprotective parents, or active children, soon it will be the standard for which we treat all injuries. Parents, teacher, and Pediatricians across the nation are embracing this new product as the greatest addition to the first aid kit since the sterilization of the Band-Aid in 1939.
The same blood clotting bandages used by the U.S. Military overseas is now available to the public. Unlike regular bandages or gauze found in your doctor's office, ABC Gauze (www.abcgauze.com) is made from an all natural collagen-like substance that actually stops bleeding on the spot. Uncontrolled bleeding is the second leading cause of death in the United States, after trauma, and more than 6 million bleeding wounds are treated annually by trauma and emergency rooms in the United States.
Different than regular bandages and gauze, ABC Gauze (Advanced Bleeding Control) actually stops bleeding on the spot by converting into a "blood stopping" gel upon contact with blood. Unlike ordinary gauze and bandages that hurt when you pull them off (often ripping off the scab,) ABC Gauze is easily and painlessly washed off with sterile water. ABC Gauze is NOT like an ordinary piece of cotton gauze. It is an all natural, collagen-likesubstance created from regenerated cellulose, an effective hemostatic agent registered with the FDA to help control bleeding from wounds and in-body cavities. When it comes in contact with blood, it stops bleeding fast.
ABC Gauze is ideal for stopping bleeding in hundreds of diverse situations where bleeding can occur. It is a "must have" for bleeding that results from playground injuries, biking accidents, slipping at the pool, nose bleeds, sports injuries, ceramics accidents, skateboarding and rollerblading falls, hiking, skiing and snowboarding or just plain mishaps around the house. With ABC Gauze you can stop the bleeding and seek out medical attention as easy as A-B-C!
Unlike its competitors, there are NO known side effects from the use of ABC Gauze. This product is certainly a "must have" for every home, travel, auto and boat first aid kit. If it is good enough to save lives on battle fields around the globe, it is good enough to be in every household in America. ABC Gauze is by no means a trend in treating open wounds; it is quickly becoming the accepted standard.
