Full-strength CELOX granules are bonded to the surface of CELOX
gauze, which has a more stable, denser consistency than traditional
thready gauze and does not compact under pressure. Just pack the
injury and apply pressure. Most bleeding is stopped in seconds, with
little or no occurrence of re-bleed.
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.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES:
Proven to control arterial bleeding within minutes
Works in hypothermic conditions
FDA cleared to work on anticoagulated blood
No heat no burning
,li> Sterile, waterproof packaging
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 five 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 bodys 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.
CELOX is made of chitosan, a compound derived from shrimp shells. Chitosan has proven antimicrobial properties and is not a procoagulant. Chitosan is broken down and absorbed through normal metabolic pathways and has an extensive history of use in vascular closure and in human cardiac surgery.
CELOX has a three year history of use in emergency, military, and retail first aid with no reported incidents. An external review was commissioned on the safety of CELOXs ingredients in the body and concluded that CELOX was safe to use internally in surgery and that residual quantities presented no risk.
What is Celox?
Celox is a very effective hemostat granule. It is made of a propriety composition which contains chitosan.
Chitosan is a natural polymer extracted and highly purified from using shrimp shells. Celox's composition is protected by 3 international patent applications.
How does Celox work?
Celox bonds to the surface of red blood cells and platelets to produce a gel like clot or plug.
It works independently of the body's normal clotting mechanism and can clot hypothermic or even heparinised blood. See data on www.celoxmedical.com.
Is Celox a Pharmaceutical?
No. Celox is a Medical Device. It is regulated in a similar but more diligent way than Band Aid.
Will Celox stop severe life threatening bleeding?
Yes, if applied to the bleeding vessel Celox can stop the severe bleeding from a severed artery.
In testing by the U.S. Navy Celox was the only product to obtain 100% survival. Journal of academic emergency medicine Jan 08, pages 74-81.
Will Celox clot blood containing anticoagulants such as Coumadin?
Yes, Celox has been tested and proven to clot blood containing heparin and Coumadin (generic name Warfarin).
The FDA have reviewed these tests and allowed us to make this claim.
Will Celox clot hypothermic blood?
Yes, Celox has been tested and proven to clot blood as cool as 56°F.
The FDA have reviewed these tests as part of our 510k application and by BSI as part of our class 3 CE Mark.
Can Celox be easily removed from a wound?
Yes. In cases of emergency bleeding, Celox should be left in the wound until the patient in seen by medical personnel.
It can then be easy removed. Remove as much as possible by hand, then irrigate the wound with water or saline.
In cases of minor bleeding Celox can be removed once the wound has stabilized. This can be as short as 10 minutes. Irrigate with water or saline.
Chitosan is a natural polysaccharide (polymer made of sugars) and has been shown to be broken down to basic sugars (glucosamine & n-acetyl glucosamine)
by lysozyme, one of the body's normal enzymes.
What Shelf life does Celox have?
3 years. We have tested and proven that Celox will still pass its original specification after 3 years aging.
These results where reviewed by the FDA as part of our 510k approval and by BSI as part of our class 3 CE Mark.
Is Celox suitable for minor wounds?
Yes. It will stop minor bleeding fast reducing blood loss and giving you more control.
Will Celox adversely effect later wound healing?
No. Celox has been tested on full thickness skin wounds to show that wound healing continues normally after its use.
Does Celox generate heat?
No. Celox has been tested and shown not to generate increases in heat during blood clotting.
How is Celox used?
Celox use is easy. Pour, Pack And Press.
Pour on to the area of the wound.
Pack any cavity with either Celox or gauze.
Press. Compress the wound to push the Celox into place and stop blood flow for a short period while the Celox clot develops and strengthens.
The amount of time and pressure required depends on the pressure at which blood is coming out of the body.
For minor wounds, finger tip pressure for a few seconds should be adequate.
For severe bleeding strong pressure for up to 5 minutes or as long as reasonable in the circumstances, is advised.
Should a wound start to rebleed (and you believe Celox was put over the bleeding area) then just hold pressure for longer.
Additional packs can be used if required.
