In “Table 1 – Investigated dressings” the mechanism of action reading: “Unknown; presumably concentration of procoagulant factors due to water absorption and Ca2+ release ” for QuikClot® needs to be replaced with: “Activation of coagulation factor XII ”, whereby the reference Lamb et al. 2012 (here ) replaces #20 (Li et al. 2013) as reference for the mechanism of action.
In the discussion section page 7 of 10, line 15 the statement “… that advances coagulation by rapidly absorbing fluid.” needs to be extended by: “… and activates factor XII of the coagulation cascade.”
Corrections and extension of the above statements regarding the mechanism of action of QuikClot® does not alter the findings or conclusions of the original article.
