CELOX Gauze Pad:
CELOX First Aid Blood Clot Hemostatic Gauze Pad will help stop the bleeding until you can seek medical assistance or may even help you or a loved one avoid a trip to the doctor’s office or emergency room.

CELOX granules are bonded on the surface of CELOX gauze, a stable (not flimsy) gauze which will not compact under pressure. Independent in vivo testing showed 100% success in achieving hemostasis & reduced blood loss compared to other treatments
