This trial will investigate the use of a novel medical device for control of severe, life-threatening, intra-abdominal bleeding.

ResQFoam will be used on adult patients that have suffered an injury causing severe bleeding in the abdomen and requires emergency surgery to repair the area(s). The patient population may include: victims of gun violence, motor vehicle accidents, or other injuries causing severe, uncontrollable blood loss in the abdomen. The device is inserted into the abdomen, expands and applies pressure to the wound to stop the bleeding.

Patients who will receive this investigational device are those who come into the emergency room and may be too sick to give permission for themselves. For this reason, there is a process called Exception From Informed Consent or “EFIC”.
