Indian defence lab develops ‘combat drugs’ to reduce casualties in Pulwama type attacks, warfare.


With 90 per cent of gravely wounded security personnel succumbing to injuries within a few hours, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO’s) medical laboratory has come up with a range of ‘combat casualty drugs’ that can extend the golden hour till the trooper is shifted to hospital.

Scientists said, the spectrum includes bleeding wound sealants, super absorptive dressings and glycerinated salines, all of which can save lives in the event of warfare in the jungle and high altitude areas as well as in terror attacks.

Citing the recent terror attack in Pulwama, they said the medicines could have brought down the death toll.
According to developers of the drugs, chances of survival and minimum disability are highest when effective first aid care is given within the golden hour.
