The power of Celox™ is available on a Gauze. Celox™ Gauze is an instinctive way of using Celox™ to stop even severe bleeding or hemorrhage. Just pack the wound and apply pressure its safe, easy and very effective.
Celox™ Gauze has highly effective Celox™ granules bonded on to the surface of a stable gauze which will not compact under pressure. A single pack of Celox™ Gauze is capable of packing more than twice the wound volume of some of its competitors. Celox’s™ unique, patented and natural formula, works independently of the body’s normal clotting mechanisms to clot blood even where normal clotting is slow or impaired.
In laboratory, wound model and clinical testing Celox Gauze™ has repeatedly shown itself to be able to quickly and reliably stop even deep arterial bleeds**. Of course that should not surprise you as Celox™ granules have already been shown to result in 100% survival in independent US Navy’s severe bleeding tests.
Now Celox™ Gauze has a prestigious class 3 CE Mark. A class 3 CE involves a very thorough review of the product's manufacture, performance and safety by an independent quality assurance company (notified body). It is real mark of quality.
Celox™ is made with chitosan. Chitosan is broken down by lysozyme, a human enzyme, to leave glucosamine, a sugar which is normally found in the body.
Unlike some other hemostats, Celox™ does NOT use or release non degrading procoagulant minerals or alumina based clays such as smectitie or kaolin, which will remain in the body indefinately unless completely removed.
