Emergency Wound Care for the Future
In a crisis, seconds matter: death by bleeding from a gunshot or blast takes just a few minutes. CELOX medical products treat severe wounds, at the point of first treatment, and wherever needed to help keep the patient alive and reach surgical care. CELOX trauma treatments include advanced bandages that rapidly stop lethal bleeding and dressings designed to quickly seal wounds that penetrate the chest wall.
CELOX RAPID Gauze is a hemostatic agent – it is designed to stop external bleeding from gunshot injuries, stab, blast wounds and other bleeding injuries. CELOX RAPID stands out ahead of its competitors due to its speed, drastically reducing the treatment time needed to hold pressure and stop bleeding for a severe arterial injury. CELOX Rapid Hemostatic Gauze is indicated to control moderate to severe external bleeding.
Also in our range, the FOXSEAL chest seal dressing for use on penetrating chest wounds, sealing the injury to stop progressive deterioration in breathing that occurs with this type of wound.
CELOX products are used in military Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Tactical EMS, Law Enforcement and remote medicine, wherever first aid trauma dressings are needed. With the rise in active shooter or terrorist incidents, CELOX products are also a critical part of public access response kits. See the full range of CELOX products here.

The initiative calls for more to be done by the public that is witness to active shooter and mass casualty events to stop life threatening bleeding in the event of an emergency.
