DARPA Uses Ultrasound To Heal Wounds

The Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has worked out a deal with Siemens Healthcare, the University of Washington’s Centre for Industrial and Medical Ultrasound and Texas A&M to work on a project known as the Deep Bleeder Acoustic Coagulation cuff (DBAC). This cuff is a semi-automated, ultrasound device that was specially created to stop blood loss and shock resulting from combat limb injuries, and is simple enough to be operated by any GI without the need for specialized training. It seems that focusing ultrasound toward a wound will help quicken coagulation and help stem the bleeding, making it a crucial battlefield implement to have which could potentially help save lives. DARPA is crossing its fingers on a prototype being available within 18 months’ time, and so are we.
