Celox (containing chitosan) is currently considered one of the top two hemostatic agents available according to a recent study conducted by the US Army Institute of Surgical Research.
- When mixed with blood, Celox forms a robust gel like clot in 30 seconds.
- Independent in vivo testing showed 100% success in achieving hemostasis & reduced blood loss compared to other treatments
- Tested in a model of casualty evacuation, achieving 100% successful transport without re-bleeding
- Coated gauze allows for controlled placement at the source of bleeding
- Proven to control arterial bleeding within minutes
- Works in hypothermic conditions
- Clots heparinized blood
- FDA cleared to work on anti-coagulated blood
- Generates no heat No chemical exothermic reaction (heat) therefore no burning
- Sterile, waterproof packaging
- Applied using basic first aid skills
