Oh My Gauze!

<br> <P>From the battlefield to your first aid kit, how a piece of gauze is saving lives.<br></P>

THE HEART PUMPS A MILLION BARRELS OF BLOOD DURING THE AVERAGE LIFETIME, ENOUGH TO FILL THREE SUPERTANKERS!
LOSING JUST ONE GALLON COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH.
TONIGHT'S HEALTHCAST SHOWS US A NEW AND SIMPLE FIRST- AID TOOL THAT ONE COP SAYS SAVED HIS LIFE AND COULD SAVE MANY MORE.
ACTION FLICKS ARE FULL OF THEM.
SHOOT-OUTS BETWEEN GOOD GUYS AND BAD GUYS. FOR POLICE OFFICER GERALD VENEZIANO IT WAS NO MOVIE.
"My face three times. My leg in my arm, my chest."
 ONE BULLET HIT AN ARTERY IN THE LAWMAN'S THIGH. HE COULD HAVE BLED TO DEATH.
"We located a heavy bleeding gunshot wound right above his leg."
OFFICER MICHAEL ORR WAS FIRST ON THE SCENE. IN HIS FIRST AID KIT WAS SOMETHING HE'D USED AS A MARINE IN IRAQ, TREATED GAUZE THAT CAN STOP BLEEDING...
"And turn a regular piece of surgical gauze into a very powerful hemostatic agent."
QUIK-CLOT HAS A BLOOD-CLOTTING AGENT EMBEDDED INTO ITS FIBERS. THE COMPANY THAT MAKES IT CLAIMS IT CAN STOP BLEEDING IN LESS THAN THREE MINUTES. 
"All the tests we've done before showed a 600% improvement in the time to actually clot and stop bleeding, then regular gauze or regular manual pressure."
IT'S BEEN USED BY THE U-S MILITARY AND NOW THE COMPANY HAS DONATED 15-THOUSAND UNITS OF QUIK-CLOT TO THE SYRIAN AMERICAN MEDICAL SOCIETY TO HELP VICTIMS OF THE BLOODY CLASHES IN SYRIA. OFFICER VENEZIANO SAYS HE WOULDN'T BE HERE WITHOUT THIS.
OFFICER VENEZIANO IS BACK ON DUTY.
SINCE THE SHOOTING HIS POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS ISSUED QUIKCLOT GAUZE TO EVERY ONE OF ITS OFFICER.
