SAM Medical has designed a new applicator delivery system for CELOX™ called CELOX -A™. The new applicator device with plunger, now makes it possible to place the CELOX ™ hemostatic agent deep into the site of a traumatic wound. It will help deliver the clotting agent close to the source of bleeding.
This product reminds me of an old military medic trick. I’ve heard stories about corpsman carrying tampons and pushing them deep into penetrating wounds. The new SAM CELOX -A™ Applicator looks a lot like a tampon injector or syringe, loaded with granules of their CELOX ™ hemostatic. It comes in a slim and rugged package that will conveniently store anywhere you need it.
CELOX™ is a new high-performance granular hemostatic material. It is a proprietary marine biopolymer designed to stop high-volume arterial bleeding. CELOX™ is suitable for many applications, including deep arterial bleeds. CELOX™ clots blood fast, does not generate heat, works in extreme cold and on heparinized patients.
