An Overview of Celox Rapid Z Fold Gauze

Introducing the groundbreaking Celox Rapid Z Fold Gauze, the fastest acting hemostatic gauze designed to halt severe arterial bleeding in just a minute of compression.

Revolutionary Haemostatic Technology

Unlike traditional trauma gauzes that require at least three minutes of compression, the Celox Rapid Z Fold Gauze leverages the science of Chito-R™ technology. Infused with activated chitosan granules, this emergency gauze sticks to the wet tissue in a wound. It rapidly forms an adhesive gel, sealing the wound, halting blood flow, and slashing compression time.

When Time is of the Essence

In emergency or hostile scenarios where every second is crucial, the rapid response of this gauze truly shines. As an advanced bleeding gauze, it accelerates wound packing time and minimises compression time to just 60 seconds.

Product Composition

Celox Gauze Z-Fold is composed of 8g pf Celox granules on a stable Viscose 7.6 cm wide gauze, Z-folded. Derived from shrimp chitin, the activated chitosan in Celox Gauze is designed to clot blood upon direct contact with the gauze.

Mode of Action

The operational mechanism of Celox Gauze Z-Fold is both fascinating and effective. The Celox granules present on the gauze are high surface area flakes carrying a positive charge. Once these granules encounter blood, they immediately form a bond with the negatively charged red blood cells.

As the Celox™ gets wet, it begins to swell and transform into a gel. This gelling process, coupled with its adhesion to blood cells, forms a gel-like clot that effectively halts blood flow. Importantly, Celox™ does not interfere with the normal clotting cascade; it only induces clotting in the blood it comes directly in contact with.

Thanks to its physical mode of action, the Celox Gauze Z-Fold is capable of working effectively on hypothermic blood as well as blood containing heparin.
