This z-folded hemostatic chitosan impregnated gauze dressing was designed specifically for the battlefield to quickly control severe hemorrhaging and save lives. Like Celox™ Gauze, it requires minimal training and entails no risk of remote clotting. It offers the advantage of being flat z-folded for smaller displacement.

A uniquely formulated dressing, Chitogauze™ XR Pro is flexible and ideal for a variety of applications and wound surfaces. Unlike some other hemostatic gauze, ChitoGauze™ offers antibacterial properties against 26 organisms including MRSA, VRE, and more. This gauze does not contain pro-clotting agents, providing a safe and localized hemostatic solution. Includes an X-ray detectable strip.

The natural and unique characteristics of chitosan and HemCon's proprietary manufacturing process create ChitoGauze™, which slows the blood movement through the dressing, offering a local hemostatic solution. The chitosan in ChitoGauze™ binds red blood cells and platelets on the dressing's surface which provides localized clotting independently from the normal clotting cascade.

    An Absolute Must

    Posted by CMO Batch on 09 02 2014

    Every medic needs to have at least two of these in his/her trauma pack. The absolute best of the field hemostatics on the market today. All my medics carry two in each of their kits. Rescue Essentials has the best price I could find.
