Britt.Britt & All That Entails


A little bit of this, a little bit of that and a whole heap of in-between

Ask me anything. I'm game.

I figured most of my Facebook friends would miss out on some of Martin Luther King, Jr’s quotes that are less palatable for complacent America. So I made some aggressive and hard-to-ignore photos to bomb their feed with for today.

A day late, but still important.

INCREDIBLE-YET-SIMPLE INVENTION CAN SEAL A GUNSHOT WOUND IN 15 SECONDS – WHAT IT COULD MEAN FOR SOLDIERS

From The Blaze:

While the U.S. Defense Department is taking bold steps to embrace the latest technology in nearly every operational specialty, it might be the simplicity of a kitchen sponge that saves hundreds of lives every year.

The new battlefield gadget is called X-STAT, and it uses a novel twist on simple science, offering a different way to treat deep gun shot wounds that have plagued military medics for years.

The sponges work fast: In just 15 seconds, they expand to fill the entire wound cavity, creating enough pressure to stop heavy bleeding, reports Popular Science. Keeping the technology simple is hugely important in the chaotic, pre-hospital environment. RevMedx designed the XSTAT to literally be plug-and-play.

The dime-sized expanding sponges – which are made from standard medical-grade sponges and covered with a hemostatic agent – are injected into the wound with the plastic tube and immediately expand to stop the bleeding. And because the sponges cling to moist surfaces, they can’t be pushed back out of the body by gushing blood.

RevMedx claims uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of death on the battlefield and the second leading cause of death in civilian trauma. According to a report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the highest percentage of survivable battlefield deaths from 2001-2009 came from major trauma hemorrhage.

RevMedx, founded in 2009, focused their research on solving the problem of “non-compressible hemorrhage,” and believes their modified syringe that injects specially coated sponges into wounds will be the solution:

“A significant number of wounds occur to regions of the torso where compression cannot be applied, such as the pelvis or shoulder … By working closely with the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and US Special Operations Command, we succeeded in developing a novel hemostatic dressing capable of stopping high-flow arterial bleeding within seconds without external compression.”

RevMedx recently petitioned the FDA for approval of their invention, Popular Science reports. The company claims XSTAT could boost survival rates and spare injured soldiers from additional pain.

“The core technology behind the XSTAT dressing is mini-sponges that expand upon contact with blood — resulting in a nearly immediate hemostatic effect without manual compression,” the RevMedx site states. “We are incorporating this self-expanding sponge technology into a portfolio of hemostatic dressings to treat a wide range of wound types.”

The DoD Hemorrhage and Resuscitation Research and Development Program portfolio manager said the XSTAT provides the military with a totally new way to save lives, according to the Army. “It is a capability that has never existed before, and can be used in the field setting by medics, possibly even with buddy aid,” Dr. Anthony Pusateri said.

These are freaking cool. I’m just curious about removal? Assuming they kind of come out in a blob?

And people thought we were joking when we said we carried Tampons for gun shot wounds.  Cool seeing things evolve into new life saving tools.

fucking awesome

:-D!!!!! Look!!!!

Most upsetting thing I’ve learned this semester: African Americans took thirty years to establish Seneca Village, NYC as an autonomous village with churches, homes, organizations where they could have freedom and exert political control. The village was destroyed by white backlash culminating in the creation of Central Park on that site to, which successfully erased it from the city’s history.

One of my absolute favorite Malcolm X quotes

The Malcom X they don’t show you. 

it wasn’t until he spoke of unity that they wanted him dead ..

Real shit though. The second he started talking about human rights violations instead of merely civil rights he became a threat to the whole system of white supremacy

Why do you never hear this?

  • business: I can't afford to pay my employees a living wage.
  • free market conservatives: Lazy! If you can't afford one of the basic expenses of running a business, you shouldn't be running a business. Go back to school and learn how to run a business! Get a better business model! Why should you expect the rest of us to prop up your failure by feeding and clothing the employees YOU can't pay for with our tax money?
