SAINT PAUL, Minn., Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CoAg Medical announces a first of its type, one-of-a-kind product for all bleeding situations. FDA approved for the public and not just to Doctors, Emergency Rooms, and First Responders. Uniquely special, StopsBleeding™ is endorsed by Lou Ferrigno, "The Incredible Hulk," Mr. Universe, active Deputy Sheriff and Emergency First Responder. And it even has Walmart's attention, where it will be available in their Pharmacy Department soon.
Great for everyday folks with cuts, lacerations and major trauma wounds. StopsBleeding™ also offers the millions of people on blood thinners the solution they so desperately seek. A sure way to stop the bleeding of everyday cuts that otherwise result, for many, in a trip to the ER or Urgent Care.
Dr. Amir Ahmed, the Chief Medical Officer of CoAg Medical and previous doctor from both Johns Hopkins and MD Anderson, says, "StopsBleeding™ changes First Aid bleeding situations forever. Everyone knows to apply pressure to a wound. Now everyday people will generously apply StopsBleeding™ powder to their wound and apply pressure. The product works like nothing ever seen before. Medicare, Medicaid and insurance companies should save staggering amounts of money per year on just the millions of people on blood thinners who will no longer have to go to the Emergency Room or Urgent Care to have even a small cut treated by professionals, as now they can stop the bleeding themselves with StopsBleeding™, the only product of its kind. The number of lives saved by StopsBleeding™ will be an enormous contribution to society."
"It's amazing and it's for everyone," according to Lou Ferrigno, "The Incredible Hulk," Mr. Universe, active Deputy Sheriff and Emergency First Responder. "StopsBleeding™ is for every bleeding situation - from people on blood thinners to people with gunshot wounds. Every person needs to have it available to them everywhere and at all times. First Responders need to add this product to their trauma kits. The Walmart associates in Bentonville, Arkansas, were upbeat, receptive and hospitable. They were wonderful to work with."
CoAg Medical's CEO Patrick Spearman is quoted as saying, "Walmart buyers are talented, great listeners and are empowered to make major decisions on the spot. It is no wonder that Walmart is one of the most successful companies in the world. The buyer we met with listened and watched intently, asked questions, understood the StopsBleeding™ technology thoroughly, along with CoAg Medical's high-volume manufacturing capabilities, and the FDA approved regulatory and quality procedures at the 100% made in the USA StopsBleeding™ medical device manufacturing facility." Describing the end of the meeting, Patrick said, "The buyer reached across the table and shook the presenters' hands and stated she wanted to partner with us." StopsBleeding™ will start to be on Walmart's store shelves in March of this coming year (2016).
Walmart's buyer obviously saw that for the millions of people on blood thinners and for all folks faced with bleeding trauma situations daily in America that StopsBleeding™ could provide a new product offering to millions of its customers currently not being served. For only 6 to 8 dollars, StopsBleeding™ is affordable to everyone.
Vice President Shelly Amann stated, "To supply India, the Middle East and Africa, we plan on building another plant in the spring of 2016 in Dubai with the same manufacturing capacity as in our St. Paul, MN plant. The doctors and people overseas are clamoring for StopsBleeding™ where trauma situations are routine. The acceptance of our product in that region has been overwhelming."
The only product of its kind, FDA approved for topical and trauma bleeding, StopsBleeding™ is a sterile modified amylopectin, organic powder which effectively stops bleeding for topical, and more importantly and uniquely, trauma use including major arterial wounds. Cuts, lacerations, gun-shot wounds and even arterial bleeding can be controlled with StopsBleeding™. The product is safe, soothing and most importantly will stop bleeding in seconds turning a frantic moment to a calm one. StopsBleeding™ effectively addresses all bleeding for millions of people on blood thinners, which until now, has yet to be resolved. Spokesperson Lou Ferrigno, "The Incredible Hulk," has his picture and endorsement on every package. Through automated mass-production, more than one unit produced every second, StopsBleeding™ is now affordable to consumers and not just First Responders, Emergency Rooms, Cardiologists and Specialty Doctors. As published by American College of Emergency Physicians, this product is scientifically and clinically proven to control bleeding in a lethal arterial injury.
