Jingxian Wu and Team Awarded $1.9M for Bleeding Detection Device

The Department of Defense has allocated over $1.9 million to a team of researchers at the University of Arkansas and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Their goal is to develop a wearable device aiding in early detection and monitoring of internal and external bleeding. This grant, part of the Department of Defense’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs, targets addressing hemorrhagic shock, a leading cause of preventable death in casualty care. Current methods often detect blood loss too late, emphasizing the need for early detection and management. The team’s mobile device aims to detect blood pressure waveforms, correlating with blood volume within vessels, facilitating timely intervention for hemorrhaging patients: $1.9 Million Awarded to Create Device That Will Reduce Death From Bleeding | University of Arkansas (uark.edu)
