Hemorrhaging remains the leading cause of preventable death in modern wars. The military invests heavily on solutions that increase the survivability of troops injured with puncturing wounds. The hemostatic utility of capturing superparamagnetic nanoparticles dispersed in the circulatory system with magnets was studied. The research investigated the utility of the technique by examining nanoparticle suspensions in a precision flow instrument modeled after the human circulatory system and comparing the results against a Brownian diffusion model.
