BioStat LLC Celox™ Rapid Z-Fold Gauze is an instinctive way of using Celox™ to stop mild to severe bleeding. Just pack the wound and apply pressure (as needed) - it’s safe, easy and very effective.
Celox™ Rapid can be used to control severe bleeding faster than other hemostat dressings. With faster packing and faster compression, up to three minutes can be saved on caring for a casualty. Saving time increases the chances of survival for the casualty and for the whole team in a hostile or emergency situation.
Celox™ Rapid uses Chito-RTM an activated chitosan that speeds up control of bleeding. Chito-R™ sticks to wet tissue, providing electrostatic binding to platelets, absorption of blood, creating hemostasis through a gelatin-like plug locally at the bleeding site. This may be augmented by direct pressure applied by the responder. It is this moist gelatin-like dressing that gives Celox™ Rapid the excellent results with reduced compression time, allowing Celox™ Rapid to minimize blood loss and save lives. The Chito-R™ is heat fixed to Celox™ Rapid creating a high volume, rapid packing gauze strip to maximize packing speed. Laboratory trials have shown that Celox™ Rapid Gauze can be rapidly packed in half the time of competitive devices. It demonstrated wound hemostasis within 1 minute or less. It also fills a higher volume when wet and under compression than the competitive devices.
