Sgt. Shane Pugh, a medic, was seriously injured along with another soldier in an IED attack on his humvee on March 2, 2005. Pugh assisted engineers in trying to control the bleeding of his partner. Pugh bled to death himself in the process. I see this story and wonder if a tourniquet or blood clotting powder would have made a difference.
