Celox Rapid Ribbon is a 1" wide x 5 feet long Z-fold Gauze Ribbon with 3g Activated Chito-R (tm).
Celox™ RAPID speeds up compression time. This is demonstrable based on in vivo results that are similar or better after one minute than results after three minutes compression for ChitoGauze™ or Quikclot Combat Gauze™ in previous studies.
REDUCED BLOOD LOSS
Celox™ RAPID demonstrated decreased secondary blood loss in comparison to Combat Gauze (4).
STABILITY IN EVACUATION
Celox™ RAPID maintains its volume and adhesion to wet tissue during use, helping it to stay in place during patient transport and maintain hemostasis during transit. In comparative testing against Chitogauze™ and Combat Gauze, Celox™ RAPID demonstrated significantly stronger adhesion after treatment at time intervals of one minute, three minutes and twenty minutes. Because Celox™ RAPID sticks to wet tissue, its use results in performance benefits including hemostasis speed, reduced blood loss and safer transit of severely wounded patients. (3)
The positively charged activated chitosan in Chito-R™ rapidly absorbs blood. This process creates a robust gel plug over the bleeding source independent of the body’s intrinsic clotting cascade. The activated chitosan in Chito-R is a compound of glucosamine and N-acetyl glucosamine, naturally occurring basic sugars.
Celox™ RAPID with Chito-R™, addressing the significant capability gap of the current standard of treatment for hemorrhage control. Celox™ RAPID can eliminate the compression step entirely after packing.
