Celox Z-Fold Hemostatic Gauze by Biostat LLC. is a high volume, rapid packing gauze strip designed to control moderate to life threatening emergency bleeding fast. The Z-fold gauze pad is pre-coated in Celox hemostatic stop bleeding agent; place or pack directly on to a severe bleeding wound and apply pressure for about 30 seconds. On contact, Celox binds to the surface of red blood cells to form a gel-like plug. Stops bleeding in smaller wounds within seconds and controls mild to potentially life-threatening arterial bleeding within minutes. Pad is easily cut or torn to size if needed.
Celox is made of chitosan, a derivative of chitin which is extracted from shrimp shells and has proven antimicrobial properties. 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 patient 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. Celox Z-fold Gauze is fast, effective first aid in any type of bleeding incident ranging from minor cuts, severe puncture or other deep wounds. Essential for all well-stocked first aid kits at home, play, or workplace.
Blood stop function compares to Bleed Arrest, Quick Clot and Wound Seal.
