CELOX RAPID Haemostatic Z-Fold Gauze
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, haemostats need to work fast.
The current generation of haemsotatic agents need at least 3 minutes of compression to work. Celox RAPID Gauze (Z fold 7.6cm x 150cm) removes the delay by speeding up packing time and reducing compression time to just 60 seconds while using the proven haemsotat technology of Celox.
For use by trained emergency responders. Celox™ Gauze has highly effective Celox™ granules bonded on to the surface of a stable gauze which will not compact under pressure. Celox is a quick, safe and effective product to use, and is an ideal treatment option for injuries sustained in remote locations. Celox gauze does not generate heat and is safe to use on the entire body including head, neck and chest wounds. Just pack the wound and apply pressure – its safe, easy and very effective.
Celox Gauze is the latest advance in the Celox range, and is an ideal addition to any medical first responder’s trauma equipment when dealing with life-threatening bleeding. Celox Gauze consists of a robust fabric dressing coated with Celox granules. It is an instinctive product to use, and allows the delivery of Celox Granules directly to the bleeding site. Within seconds, a sticky, gel-like plug will form, and this, in conjunction with direct pressure, will control the most severe of bleeds within minutes. Celox Gauze does not require cutting, and can be easily torn to the required size. It works well in windy conditions, or any other high-stress environment. With no special storage instructions, Celox Gauze is always ready for use, in any environment from the arctic to the desert. Celox Gauze was developed to effectively meet the needs of any emergency medical first responder, and is the latest addition to the Celox line of traumatic wound treatments. Celox Gauze is suitable for all types of bleeding, including arterial and venous bleeds. It does not generate heat, is easily removed from the wound, and is effective at clotting hypothermic blood and blood containing anti-coagulants.
