Train to Be Prepared With the Z-Medica QuikClot

Trauma is costly: It’s a major cause of death and disability and the second-most-expensive healthcare problem in the U.S. While you may have already known that, were you aware that approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths are due to bleeding or its consequences, with hemorrhaging being the most-common cause of preventable death in trauma? That’s where QuikClot devices come into play: When applied with manual pressure, they promote immediate clotting upon application, thereby helping you to save more lives. But before you get out on-scene and save lives, you need proper training; the Z-Medica QuikClot Combat Gauze® Moulage Trainer is the perfect tool to ensure you get the critical training you need. Here’s why:

Z-Medica QuikClot Combat Gauze® Moulage Trainer


Exclusively designed for simulated training only, the Z-Medica QuikClot Combat Gauze® Moulage Trainer replicates the unique feel of authentic QuikClot Combat Gauze®, which makes it an excellent, hands-on training resource for treating simulated casualties. It is ideal for use with artificial blood; the combination allows a trainee to experience the authentic feel of dealing with such traumas on-scene.

From a teaching standpoint, the Z-Medica QuikClot Combat Gauze® Moulage Trainer is conducive to allowing trained emergency responders, who are authorized by federal, state, and/or local policies, rules, regulations, guidelines, protocols, and/or laws, to properly and thoroughly train personnel on its proper application, due in part to its completely inert composition. This is critical, seeing as how proper training directly translates to readiness in the field and top performance when faced with life-threatening challenges on-scene.

Make Every Second Count With the Zico Cylinder Bracket

Since its inception, Ziamatic Corp. has provided new, innovative products to emergency medical professionals that are designed to make their jobs safer and easier. With the inception of each new design, two concepts have consistently been at the forefront: quality and efficiency. Both of these attributes, the latter in particular, are especially prominent in the new Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators. Here’s why:

Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators





Picture this: You’re responding to a myocardial infarction call, and you need to get to the scene immediately. Time is absolutely critical; wasting it has the potential to be fatally critical. In many instances, life-saving “D” gas cylinders with mounted regulators are secured by Velcro or rubber straps when transported in ambulances to the scene of a call. Extra time must be taken when undoing these straps when taking the cylinders out for use. Quite simply, these extra seconds can mean the difference between life and death. This is where the efficiency of the Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators is truly realized: It is strapless, thereby making it much easier for emergency medical professionals to lock it in place and to remove it at a moment’s notice.

Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators

Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators



Constructed of durable stainless steel, the Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators features a fast, simple, self-locking bracket specifically designed to hold standard, jumbo, and steel “D” gas cylinders with mounted, all-in-one-style regulators. It has a backspring that ensures a secure fit and prevents the cylinder from rattling. Mount it by itself or side-by-side with many additional brackets for safe, secure storage and to allow immediate access to them when needed.


Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators


Additionally, you won’t need to worry about bloodborne pathogens: Because the Zico Strapless “D” Cylinder Bracket for All-In-One Regulators lacks a strap and fabric, this makes it extremely easy to clean and disinfect.

Make every second count; a life could depend on them. For more information and to get yours, be sure to visit theEMSstore.com.
