How to use gauze in a sentence?

  1. James Schuetzler:

    My pilot landed his aircraft and got out, was able to make contact with the woman who told him that she had been shot in the head. It was obvious, too, that she had been shot and was just basically clinging to the border fence where he could go ahead and pass gauze and things like that through first aid stuff for her, once the Border Patrol agents arrived on scene, they had water and medical supplies and were able to pass that through the fence. And thankfully, because of the great partnerships we have out here in eastern and southeastern California and southwestern Arizona, we were able to get a law enforcement and EMS response from the Mexican side of the border.

  2. Dana Martinez:
