A bandage is a good reminder that you have an injury and should not overdo it.

After the start of the latest Iraqi conflict some three years ago, I told you about the one of the newer and most effective technologies developed by Oregon-based HemCon to stanch bleeding and promote clotting: A bandage made with chitosan, a natural protein found in shrimp shells.
About the size of a square coaster, the bandage not only creates a seal to stop bleeding, it promotes clotting (by producing a positive charge attracting blood cells and platelets that carry a negative charge), has antibacterial properties and, unlike other wound treatments, it doesn't burn healthy skin.
These bandages are already paying dividends, thanks to HemCon's recent donations to local EMTs, particularly for seniors taking anticoagulant drugs and being far more prone to wounds that require even more expensive transfusions.
