In a recent TED Talk, Joe Landolina, CEO and co-founder of Suneris Inc., discusses VETIGEL, a medical gel created by his company that can instantly stop traumatic bleeding without the need to apply pressure. In 2015, it will be given to veterinarians to use.

In the talk he states:

Now, this is a simulated arterial bleed … at twice human artery pressure. So now, this type of bleed is incredibly traumatic, and like I said before, would actually take five minutes or more with pressure to be able to stop. Now, in the time that it takes me to introduce the bleed itself, our material is able to stop that bleed, and it’s because it actually goes on and works with the body to heal, so it reassembles into this piece of meat, and then the blood actually recognizes that that’s happening, and produces fibrin, producing a very fast clot in less than 10 seconds.
