HOW TO USE
Using Celox™is easy. You just apply/pack it into the bleeding area and apply pressure, as needed. This pressure forces the Celox™ into close contact with the bleeding area.
For minor bleeding: finger tip pressure is effective and an efficient clot will form in a matter of seconds.
For more moderate to severe bleeding: full compression (as it is taught in First Aid Training) for 3 minutes is required or as needed. This gives the Celox™ pseudo clot time to form and strengthen to hold back bleeding.
Celox™ flakes swell, gel, and stick together when in contact with blood to make a gel like pseudo clot. CeloxTM works by bonding with red blood cells and through electro-static binding to the platelet, thereby gelling with fluids to produce a sticky pseudo clot. This clot sticks well to moist tissue to plug the bleeding site, without the chance of embolic phenomena.
