Tactical Medicine means working in urgent and possibly life-threatening conditions. Celox™ RAPID bridges the significant capability gap between this urgency and the current standard of treatment for hemorrhage control. Celox RAPID offers a step change in speed, reducing packing time to one minute. This breakthrough expands the utility of hemostatics in Tactical Field Care.
Celox RAPID hs been tested and stops arterial bleeding with minimal compression time1, speeding up treatment compared to Combat Gauze. Independent testing2 on Celox RAPID has shown that this faster treatment significantly reduces blood loss compared to Combat Gauze*. As well as reducing treatment time and blood loss, a model of tactical evacuation showed that the Celox RAPID Gauze stayed in place during transport with no re-bleeding3, so the benefits of reduced blood loss are carried through to the next echelon of care.
