CELOX™RAPID is an innovative hemostat dressing targeted primarily at military, tactical, law enforcement, and emergency services markets (all 1st Responders), and it is now becoming the market leader in these areas based on product performance.
CELOX™RAPID can be used to control severe bleeding faster than other hemostat dressings. With faster packing and minimal compression, up to three minutes can be saved on caring for a casualty. Saving time increases the chances of survival for the casualty and for the whole team in a hostile or emergency situation.
CELOX™RAPID Gauze offers a Z-fold presentation hemostat bandage, using the same instinctive steps as Celox Gauze: just pack the wound and apply pressure as needed. The difference is that CELOX™RAPID is designed to speed up both of these steps, saving critical time for you and for the casualty.
CELOX™RAPID uses Chito-R™ with activated chitosan to control bleeding. Chito-R sticks to wet tissue3, providing pressure locally at the bleeding site, which augments the pressure applied by the responder. It is this wet stickiness that gives CELOX™RAPID the excellent results with reduced compression time, allowing CELOX™RAPID to reduce blood loss and save lives. The Chito-R in CELOX™RAPID is presented on a high volume, rapid packing gauze strip to maximize packing speed. Laboratory Testing has shown that CELOX™RAPID Gauze could be rapidly packed on the wound on average within half the time of the predicate devices and demonstrated rapid wound adhesion within 1 minute. It also filled a higher volume when wet and under compression than the predicate devices4
