Early versions of the "liquid bandage" are already replacing stitches in many cases... this will probably do quite a bit for the remainder of cases.

Okay, cool.

The problem is that most clinically serious bleeding has no obvious origin or is taking place at an inacessable site of the body. For example a GI bleed. Most patients with low blood volume and hematocrit percentages recieve blood immediatley without really knowing where exactly it's going to untill hours later.

An extremely effective liquid bandage will not really perpetuate any type of "revolution" in my opinion (perhaps more on the surgical side?). I guess it looks cool on paper. The real revolutions in bleeding control come from drugs that help control hematostatis. The problem with a lot of them is that they are fairly difficult to use in emergencies because they must be tailored to an individual. You give too little it does nothing in a healthy person, you give to much (or only a little bit in the wrong person) and you get ischemia\infarction in a person who is already deadly hypoxic.

I know about that, a doctor used the stuff on me right when it came out.

He said, "Which do you want, stiches or this new glue that came this week?". I had pretty much half the staff around looking at my cut in aww about blue superglue to my face.

Instereting that my old scar was barely visble under 6 months ago when the damaged tissue broke apart from the bone. (It was 6 or 7 years ago when I got cut).

The nice thing about the new gue is the ability to break down into material that the body can use to repair itself. Which is better then having the body reject the bandage.

You know, this breakthrough wouldn't have been needed if surgeons weren't crazy obsessive with cutting things open...

come to think of it... Yeah! Surgeons and doctors are the cause of the overpopulation epidemic!
