Uncontrolled blood loss is the leading cause of death for warfighters on the battlefield, according to the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research. The vast majority of such fatalities are from wounds that are not accessible by combat medics for traditional treatments, like direct compression.

As a result, rapid and uncontrolled blood loss often leads to death before transport from the battlefield to a surgical setting can occur.
