Question 23 Explanation: 
To reduce casualties in Pulwama type attacks & warefare, the Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS) has developed a range of 'combat casualty drugs' that can extend the golden hour till the trooper is shifted to hospital. INMAS is a medical laboratory of DRDO.

They have also developed a chitosan gel which helps in preventing blood loss by forming a film over the wound.
