CELOX Trauma Gauze
Manufacturer's Part Number:
About This Brand
CELOX Trauma Gauze is a dual purpose hemostatic gauze used to effectively control traumatic bleeding and to help cool and protect 1st and 2nd degree burns. CELOX Trauma Gauze is composed entirely of CELOX's chitosan chemistry; it is not impregnated or coated. This product uses a proprietary manufacturing process to create a soft, compliant and hemostatic gauze that is similar in feel and presentation to standard cotton gauze. The gauze dressing is comprised of nonwoven chitosan fibers. The dual indications to control traumatic bleeding and to cool and protect against burns can potentially replace multiple products with one, freeing up valuable space in the battlefield medic's Improved First Aid Kit (IFAK).
As a hemostatic, chitosan-based CELOX controls bleeding by reacting with red blood cells to form a robust clot with effective clotting in about thirty seconds. As a burn dressing, this product cools and protects 1st and 2nd degree burns through its ability to transform into a gel-like material once saturated with water or a saline solution. One dressing can absorb as much as 430 ml of water or 176 ml of blood. The product is intuitive, easy to use, and safe for the patient.

How Celox Works
Celox granules are actually very high surface area flakes. When they come in contact with blood, Celox swells, gels, and sticks together to make a gel like clot.
Celox stops bleeding by bonding with red blood cells and gelling with fluids to produce a sticky pseudo clot. This clot sticks well to moist tissue to plug the bleeding site.
Celox does not set off the normal clotting cascade, it only clots the blood it comes directly into contact with.
Celox’s mode of action has a number of big benefits:
Celox’s clotting ability has been proven to work in the presence of common anti-coagulants such as warfarin …
Celox’s clotting ability has been proven to work in the presence of heparin
Celox’s rapidly clots hypothermic (cold) blood
Celox is made with chitosan, a natural polysaccharide. Chitosan has a known metabolic pathway. That means any left in the body is broken down by the bodies normal enzymes and converted into materials normally present in the body.
Chitosan is digested by lysozyme , a human enzyme which is present is tears, saliva and mucus. It breaks down to give glucosamine a sugar already present in the body and helps lubricate joints. Reference (Int. J. Biol. Macromol., 1992, Vol 14 August).
