Celox A hemostatic application Plunger system NSN# 6510-01-623-9943 provides 6g's of chitosan hemostatic granules by a barrel and plunger means, for arterial and venous bleeding in gunshot or stab wounds. The first high-speed hemostatic delivery system for gunshot, blast, or stab wounds. The applicator was designed to give the caregiver a simple and effective tool to apply Celox to the source of severely bleeding wounds. When placed directly into a bleeding wound and subjected to pressure CELOX absorbs blood and forms an adhesive gel that seals the wound to stop the flow of blood. Celox has repeatedly and reliably demonstrated the ability to stop arterial bleeding in independent US Navy severe bleeding tests(1). In a published 2011 comparison(2), Celox-A outperformed Combat Gauze in a lethal penetrating trauma model in both Initial Hemostasis and Survival. 8.7 x 3.9 inch.
