Toward a portable emergency treatment for stopping life-threatening internal bleeding

This is pretty interesting, for all those medical technology nerds out there.

Have no fear! You can now safely carry a powder with you, on the way toward your potentially life-threatening workplace environment, in case you need some extra platelets in your blood to help heal you up in a jam.

In the event you may be shot or wounded–either as a bystander who catches a stray bullet as a result of an inter-city gang fight in proximity to your location, or if you’re looking to defend your brothers on the front line in Iraq–you can be your own medic with the help of Erin Slavik, Sc.D.

Hooray for science!
