The ABC's of Healing

Here’s a first aid innovation that stops bleeding faster and more safely than any traditional bandage. ABC stands for “Advanced Bleeding Control,” and that’s just what this incredible bandage delivers. The gauze turns into a clear gel when it comes in contact with blood. The gel stops the bleeding and creates a barrier that protects the wound. It works on everything from minor abrasions and bites to puncture wounds and more severe lacerations. This all natural and sterile bandage can be used for bloody noses and in the mouth. ABC Gauze actually adheres to the healing wound, so no more painful bandage removal with minor cuts, scrapes and abrasions – which we all know can be as traumatic as the injury itself, especially when kids are involved. The gauze is made of a natural substance, similar to collagen, that’s created from regenerated cellulose. Doctors, dentists, vets, military and emergency personal have used it for years, and now it’s available to the rest of us. Time to make some room in the first-aid kit.

    ABC Gauze is the ultimate bandage that stops bleeding fast in hundreds of situations where bleeding can occur--something ordinary gauze and bandages can't do. When ABC Gauze is placed on a cut or wound that's bleeding, it converts to a gel, slightly expands, and stops the bleeding. Unlike ordinary gauze and bandages that hurt when you pull them off (often ripping off the scab), ABC Gauze easily and painlessly WASHES OFF with water. ABC Gauze is not like an ordinary piece of cotton gauze. It is an all natural, collagen-like substance created from regenerated cellulose, an effective instrument used to stop bleeding; it is also registered with the FDA. When it comes in contact with blood, it stops bleeding FAST.

    Thanks for your interest -- I look forward to your comments and questions.

    Just a little inside scoop on this video...we finished only about an hour before the noon EST launch. This AM Joanne was outside taping some better audio for one part, to clarify some key details. Yikes. We never came that close to our deadline before. I'd like to think it will never happen again, but I know better. We like to get these stories right, whatever it takes. ABC Gauze has worked very hard on this extremely innovative product and they deserve our best effort, too.

    Let me know when you're posting a Grommet related to cleaning laptops. You see, today, when watching the ABC Gauze Grommet, the sight of the open wound resulted in me throwing up on my laptop and now I need to clean it.

    Sorry for the mess @Jim M, but I'm with you! That open wound surprised my gag reflexes too! We wanted to demonstrate how the ABC Gauze makes contact with blood to stop the bleeding and promote clotting and then to form a protective barrier over the wound. Jules, maybe we should start labelling our videos? (G =Gaggy, Y = Yummy, A = Annoying, T= Tempting, any others???)

    Sara--I love it. A proprietary video rating system that only Grommet regulars will even have a slight chance of understanding. But with your system, Jim would never throw up on his laptop again. And I admit....we did wish the open wound video featured a tad more clean-up of the surrounding carnage. But the ABC folks are the pros in free-range blood management, not us.

    I liked the video showing the wound. This is a product about helping people with wounds; it's important to see it in action. I'm sorry that it distressed Jim; I hope that if Jim is ever in a position to help someone with such a wound, he'll be able to handle the task rather than throwing up. Perhaps we could all use more training in first-aid.
