NuStat® is efficacious for immediate control of life-threat¬ening hemorrhage in a well-described and validated, traumatic, 5.5mm punch arteriotomy porcine model. NuStat® required less resuscitation fluid and allowed less blood loss after dressing application over the course of the 60-minute observation window. NuStat® had trends toward superiority over Quikclot® Combat Gauze in all additional primary and secondary metrics outcomes; however, these trends failed to reach statistical significance. In this study, NuStat® showed superiority or equivalence to Quikclot® Combat Gauze for all metrics evaluated.
