So...it sounds kind of like Green Slime tire sealant, except for inside people.

This is just a new take on an old idea - we have various types of clot supporting products, from plain old platlets to gauze to xerofoam to combat gauze to whatever.

If it works better than older products, great.  If it works about as well as existing products, it will be the next new thing, until something else comes along.

Until they have something better than an animation, however, I'll keep my combat gauze handy.
Yes, I'm a physician.  No, I'm not YOUR physician.  Nothing I say here is medical advice.

Do I treat Glocks like I treat my lawn mowers?  No, I treat them worse.  I treat my defensive weapons like my fire extinguishers and smoke detector - annual maintenance and I expect them to work when needed

DARPA says it's in phase II, which means they are about to see if it can be made for a reasonable cost.  So it seems to be a bit better, than the usual, at least for now.

We will see.
