    Hello Glocktalk!

    Being an advertiser here, I wanted to introduce a product that might be of interest to the forum readers.

    Celox is the newest generation of emergency hemostatic agents. It is very simple to use and safer than older technologies. This product does not release heat when applied to the wound. CELOX granules quickly control even the most severe arterial bleeding. Just pour it in, pack it, and apply pressure. No specific training is required.

    Celox is used by the law enforcement, military personnel, those involved in high risk sports, in industrial first aid and by first responders, among other users.

    This is a great item to keep in a first aid kit or a bug out bag. Read more about Celox here

    Please feel free to email me, or ask questions about this product here.

    I have researched this product and like it. I'm going to order some for my kit and probably some for the range bag.

    Does it require any special instruction/training for it's use?

    Hello Hedo1,

    Celox is pretty easy to use.

    See the picture for the actual instructions, but the procedure can be summarized as follows: "open envelope, dump contents in wound, apply pressure for 5 minutes, wrap with dressing for transport".
    Pretty simple.

    Celox-A is a new product that may be of interest to forum readers.

    SAM Medical has designed an applicator delivery system that addresses the needs of EMS providers, physicians, and medical providers in remote settings. The applicator and plunger system now make it possible for the hemostatic agent to reach deep into the site of a traumatic wound, getting straight to the source of bleeding. Each package contains two applicator/plunger sets with 6g (0.2oz) of Celox granule in each. Read More!

    I have been researching this stuff and have heard good things about it stopping severe arterial bleeding in pigs after a carotid artery (sp) was cut.

    Redflare which do you recommend most for treating a gun shot, knife or other severe puncture wound, Celox or Celox-A??

    Celox-A is specifically designed for penetrating wounds: gunshot, knife, etc.
    If I was in law enforcement, military or an EMT, or in any danger of being shot, etc, I would carry Celox-A in my first aid kit.

    I've heard horror stories about quik clot causing blood clots and complications months down the road. Is this true? And if it is would Celox cause the same complications?

    Deep penetrating wounds in general can cause complications down the road. We have never heard any reports about Celox causing complications.
    Perhaps you could provide some references about what quik clot has caused?

    Is there an inhalation danger like with QuikClot and some of the other clotting agents? And you say it does NOT release heat on contact?

    Celox does not release heat on contact. I have had those who used Quik Clot tell me "it burned like hell". Celox remains cool after it is applied to the wound.

    The Celox-A comes in an applicator, designed to deliver the clotting agent directly to its site of action. I would think inhaling it would be kind of difficult.

    I had an EMT that was a SWAT paramedic with another agency give use first aid training about a year and a half ago. I mentioned keeping Quik Clot in the car and she told me it has been causing alot of complications with the troops. I have no evidence of this, just what she told me.

    In addition to Celox powder, www.redflarekits.com now carries QuikClot Sport gauze. Please read details here.

    A must for any first aid or emergency kit—Quikclot® Sport stops moderate to severe bleeding until further medical help is available.* Quikclot is a chemically inert material in a mesh bag that speeds coagulation of blood, resulting in a stable clot that stops bleeding
    * Stops bleeding quicker than conventional methods and is safe to leave on wounds until more advanced medical help arrives
    * Package contains a 5 x 5 in. (50g) bag of Quikclot for coverage of large wounds

  15. I carried quickclot while in Iraq, I'd rather have a complication than bleed out to death in an emergency. I know some of the guys were replacing quick clot with Celox, something like this should be in everyones bugout bag. It can save your life should you be seriously injured.
