    We have it available but rarely use.  We use StatSeal on a regular basis and it works very well for newly inserted central lines.

    Hello,

    Our ED uses Quikclot (kaolin-based gauze) on a decent basis, especially with our kids.

    Do any of your units/areas use this on the floor for any reason (prolonged epistaxis, central lines thaf won’t stop bleeding, etc.)?

    If so, what are your criteria for use?

    Thanks!
