Celox RAPID Hemostatic Z-fold Gauze by BioStat LLC is a 4th generation hemostatic dressing designed for use primarily by EMS first responders, law enforcement, military and other emergency service professionals who are likely to encounter emergency situations where severe and traumatic blood loss can occur through incidents of bullet, blast, knife and shrapnel wounds.
Celox Rapid is a high volume, rapid packing gauze strip designed to maximize packing speed and control moderate to life threatening emergency bleeding faster than other hemostatic dressings. Just pack the wound and apply pressure as need, if needed. The dressing can be applied through strong blood flows, severe high pressure bleeding, and arterial and venous bleeding, including blood containing heparin, coumadin or warfarin.
Celox Rapid is made with Chitosan-R, an activated chitosan that binds to the surface of red blood cells to form a gel-like plug locally at the bleeding site. This moist gelatin-like dressing gives Celox Rapid excellent results with reduced compression time, minimizing blood loss and saving lives. With faster packing and faster compression, up to three minutes can be saved on caring for a casualty.
Chitosan-R in Celox Rapid is a compound derived from shrimp shells and is safe for use by people with shellfish allergies. It works without generating heat or burning, without stimulating the body’s own clotting process, is effective in hypothermic conditions, and is easily irrigated from wounds when a casualty presents for further medical treatment.
Celox products come in sterile, waterproof packaging in multiple sizes and quantity designed for use by EMS professionals as well as people with basic first aid skills. The Celox Rapid Z-fold Gauze is fast, safe and easy to use; this product is recommended for use by trained EMS professionals.
