Joshua Wander  PITTSBURGH, PA
My name is Josh Wander and I am a Jerusalem medic (and a dual citizen of the US and Israel) and have treated many of the recent terror victims. Quickclot is a hemostatic gauze used to quickly treat open wounds and stop bleeding. It has been used extremely successfully by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan. The problem is that it is considered to be too expensive to supply to the average medic in Israel. On average, it retails for between $35-50 per unit. I'm trying to raise enough money to equip Jerusalem medics with this life-saving tool. The distribution of this product will be vi.a the United Hatzalah Organization in Jerusalem.

As we approach 80% funding I have an important update. After many long consultations with the heads of the EMS community here, I've been advised that at this time a better product to distribute is one called the "emergency bandage", by a company called First Care. I'm told that this bandage is the next critical step in providing our EMS first responders with a tool to save lives in these difficult times. Since this campaign was started for a type of Quickclot hemostatic bandage, I felt it nessasary to reach out to you, the donors and see if there is any objection in diverting these funds...the distribution will be made by United Hatzalah here in Israel. Anyone that wants their donation to go specifically to a hemostatic bandage, as opposed to the "emergency bandage" should contact me ASAP and I will make sure that their donation goes to that end and it will be distributed by me on a one to one basis. Again, the experts believe that we will get more "bang for our buck" by distributing the "emergency bandage" at this time, but please let me know if you have any objection and your donation will go towards its original destination. Please keep spreading the word. Also, a heads up, a new campaign will be starting soon which will describe all of the great benefits with the emergency bandage. Thank you for taking part in these life saving campaigns!

I'm sorry I don't mean to be a nudnik but we in the States have been using the Emergency Bandage as developed in Israel. Is it that your Government does not allocate budget to the various response teams? In other words, is MDA totally donation driven?

Josh, if the "emergency bandage", by First Care is a better item then by all means use it. I have no problem with my donation being diverted to the better product. Stay safe.

We are looking into two almost identical products. The first is Quickclot and the second is Celox. If anyone has any connections with these companies, please contact me ASAP!
