CELOX is an effective high-performance
hemostatic material. It is a proprietary marine biopolymer chitosan designed to
stop high-volume arterial bleeding. CELOX hemostatic can be used
for various applications from deep arterial bleeds to superficial wounds.
Celox Controls Major Arterial
CELOX’s unusual properties have been confirmed in wound
models, where they have repeatedly demonstrated the ability to rapidly control
major arterial bleeding (without cautery) from traumatic wounds. The granular
presentation provides a simple, quick and effective way to stop bleeding and is
particularly useful in treating difficult and deep wounds. A clot forms at the
site of the injured blood vessel within minutes after pouring the product into
the wound. Excess granules form a gelled mass to protect the clot. The gelled
material is easy to remove.
No Known Side Effects
CELOX hemostatic does
not generate any heat nor does it embed itself into the wound. CELOX is derived
from shellfish but it does not cause allergic reaction.
Works on All Blood Temperatures
whether blood temperature is 98.7°F (37.05°C) or 65.4 F (18.5 °C).
Works on Heparinized Blood
works on heparinized blood because it works independently of blood clotting
Lightweight, Portable, Easy to
CELOX granules are lightweight, packaged in sterilized,
sealed packets that are easy and fast to open. CELOX is to be poured into
the wound and held down with gauze for 5 minutes. A compression bandage is then
wrapped over the gauze covered wound and patient can be transported.
Available in 15gr and 35gr.
