Researchers reported at a biomedical engineering meeting that they are exploring the use of a chemical called tetraethyl orthosilicate in developing bandages that could halt blood flow from wounds quicker than standard bandages. Experiments showed that fabrics treated with the chemical, which has properties similar to glass fiber, reduced the time needed for plasma to start clotting by 25% to 30%.
