CELOX™ is a high performance chitosan-derived hemostatic designed to stop lethal bleeding fast. It is easy to use, extremely effective (clots blood in 30 seconds), and safe (is a CE Marked Class III Medical Device). CELOX comes in four different delivery systems, providing a commitment to aiding the caregiver in treating a variety of difficult and deep wounds. It also does not generate heat and will not burn the casualty or care giver. CELOX works independently of the body’s normal clotting processes. Its clotting ability has been proven to work in hypothermic conditions and in the presence of common anticoagulants such as Coumadin and Heparin.
The original CELOX version is presented in the form of hemostatic granules that can be poured directly into a wound. CELOX does not generate heat, is easy to irrigate from a wound\, and works on anticoagulated blood.
How it Works
When placed directly into a bleeding wound and subjected to pressure, the positively charged CELOX granules cross-link with negatively charged red blood cells, forming a sticky pseudo clot that blocks blood flow. 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 also does not set off a blood clotting response which would lead to clots being formed at a distance to the product.
