A "Eureka" moment while shopping is now on track to save countless lives on the battlefield, and off. The team behind the Oregon-based company RevMedX perfected a new device that can stop bleeding from a gunshot wound in just a few seconds. It's a revolutionary technique and it's today's "Big Idea."

"Every drop of blood on the battlefield is precious. The faster you can stop the bleeding, the higher the probability that you'll save that guy's life," says Andrew Barofsky, RevMedx Chief Executive Officer. "There's always the common theme with medics: improve the technology. XStat is a first in kind medical device designed to stop bleeding from small narrow entrance wounds, like a gunshot wound," he added. "You take the device; you literally plunge it into the wound or the bullet hole, and you shoot the sponges into the wound. As soon as they come into contact with blood, they rapidly expand and fill up the wound and compress it to get the bleeding to stop."

"With the current standards on the battlefield, taking three to five minutes to pack a wound, soldiers lose a tremendous amount of blood," says John Steinbaugh, RevMedx Strategic Development Director.

"One of the real innovations behind the XStat is that it's self-compressing, meaning that it expands from within the wound," Barofsky says. "What you normally have to do to get the bleeding to stop with a traditional dressing is apply compression from outside the wound, and hope that that force, or that compression gets to the sight of the bleeding. "What XStat does is it expands inside the wound and it compresses outward," Barofsky adds. "So it makes sure it gets all the potential sights of bleeding inside the wound, and it works within seconds. Because it's compressing the wound, the medic doesn't have to. And essentially, the treatment is done at that point."

"All my friends are still on active duty. They're still deploying to combat," says Steinbaugh. "What drives me is to continue to make new products to help them on the battlefield that, I think from my own personal experience, I think are better products, and will save lives on the battlefield." Barofsky says he got the idea for the X-stat from seeing a dried and compressed sponge while shopping for kitchen supplies. Proof that inspiration can strike anywhere.
