IN THE BLOOD How Two Outsiders Solved a Centuries-Old Medical Mystery and Took On the US Army

by | Read by Ron Butler

Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Ron Butler sounds surprised by the obscurity of Frank Hursey, who developed QuikClot and a related type of combat gauze. Both products were designed to stop bleeding. Here the author traces their creation and the fight to bring them to market. Butler clearly explains the science behind them and the tangled web of negotiations that followed. He powerfully dramatizes their near miraculous properties when describing the types of incidents in which they can be used--as when he recounts the thoughts of a badly injured police officer who lies bleeding. Butler also reveals the pride of product and frustration of Hursey's business partner, Bart Gullong, as he navigates the military bureaucracy and other challenges in getting it to severely injured people.
