Celox™-A hemostatic application system providing 6g chitosan hemostatic granules by a barrel and plunger means, for arterial and venous bleeding in gunshot or stab wounds.
The first high-speed hemostatic delivery system for gunshot, blast, or stab wounds. The applicator was designed to give the caregiver a simple and effective tool to apply Celox™ to the source of severely bleeding wounds. When placed directly into a bleeding wound and subjected to pressure CELOX™ absorbs blood and forms an adhesive gel that seals the wound to stop the flow of blood. Celox™ has repeatedly and reliably demonstrated the ability to stop arterial bleeding in independent US Navy severe bleeding tests(1). In a published 2011 comparison(2), Celox™-A outperformed Combat Gauze™ in a lethal penetrating trauma model in both Initial Hemostasis and Survival. 8.7 x 3.9 inch.
- When mixed with blood, Celox forms a robust gel like clot in 30 seconds.
