Features Write a Review
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 does it Work?

The Celox granules on Celox Gauze are positively charged high surface area flakes. When they come in contact with blood, the granules attract negatively charged red blood cells. In addition, as it wets the Celox� swells and gels. The gelling and adhesion to blood cells forms a gel like clot, stopping blood flow. Celox� does not set off the normal clotting cascade; it only clots the blood it comes directly into contact with. Due to the physical mode of action, Celox works on hypothermic blood and on blood containing heparin.
