THE FASTEST ACTING BATTLEFIELD HAEMOSTAT.
The fastest acting haemostatic gauze, saving over two minutes treatment time compared to others.
- Works with just 60 seconds compression8, or until bleeding stops
- Stops life-threatening bleeding – fast
- Rapid action reduces blood loss9
- Stops hypothermic bleeding4 as found in severe traumatic injuries.
Time is critical when treating severe injuries in the field and saving time increases the chance of survival for the casualty in an emergency or hostile situation. To be effective in real use, haemostatic dressings need to work fast.
The current generation of haemostatic agents need at least 3 minutes of compression to work. Celox RAPID Gauze removes the delay by speeding up packing time10 and reducing compression time to just 60 seconds while using the proven haemostat technology of Celox.
Celox Rapid contains Chito-R™ activated chitosan granules that stick to wet tissue in the wound10. Chito-R™ is bonded to a high density gauze that packs faster than traditional gauze9. Chito-R™ forms an adhesive gel that seals the wound to stop the flow of blood, speeding up compression time.
TRIED AND TESTED
Independent testing9 on Celox RAPID has shown the product works on lethal injuries and significantly reduces blood loss compared to Quikclot Gauze*. As well as reducing treatment time and blood loss, a model of tactical evacuation showed that the Celox RAPID Gauze stayed in place during transport with no re-bleeding10.
