Tex. Emergency Responders Adopt XSTAT® Gunshot Wound Treatment from RevMedx

Press Release Jan 16, 2018

WILSONVILLE, Oregon, USA January 11, 2017

RevMedx, Inc. announced today that the Highland Park Department of Public Safety (Highland Park, TX) is fielding XSTAT as a new treatment option in their medical and trauma kits. Located three miles north of Dallas, Highland Park Department of Public Safety works closely with other Dallas Metro services including Dallas Fire and Rescue and University Park Fire Department on Automatic Assistance and Mutual Aid calls. XSTAT is now carried by members of the Southern Regional Response Team medics as well as the Southern Regional Group that provide tactical medical support for several communities in the South Dallas metro area.

XSTAT works by injecting a group of small, rapidly-expanding sponges into a wound cavity using a syringe-like applicator. In a wound, the sponges rapidly expand and exert hemostatic pressure. Unlike traditional methods that may take several minutes to be effective, XSTAT can stop bleeding in seconds to stabilize injuries until patients reach an emergency facility. Since its launch in 2014, there have been numerous successful uses of XSTAT devices in civilian and military pre-hospital settings.

Andrew Barofsky, President and CEO of RevMedx, Inc., stated, "We are delighted to work with Highland Park Department of Public Safety to add XSTAT to their treatment options for penetrating trauma injuries. RevMedx is committed to supporting emergency responders by providing fast, easy and effective interventions that improve patient outcomes and survival. XSTAT is at the core of this strategy."

Early control of severe bleeding may prevent shock and may be life-saving. The United States Army Institute of Surgical Research reports that 30 to 40 percent of civilian deaths by traumatic injury are the result of hemorrhaging; of those deaths, 33 to 56 percent occur before the patient reaches an emergency care facility.
