Celox-A™, the new applicator for penetrating trauma wounds has now obtained a class 3 CE Mark approval allowing use in Europe.
MedTrade, Crewe, UK is proud to announce the European launch at MEDICA, Dusseldorf (19th -22nd Nov 08) of Celox-A.
Penetrating wounds like shrapnel or knife wounds are very difficult to treat. They can often be lethal. It is extremely difficult to get any blood clotting agent to the real source of bleeding.
Celox™-A’s patented application system now offers a solution, which allows rapid and effective treatment of life threatening bleeding. The applicator is easy and instinctive to use. It allows you to get the Celox™ granules through a small entry wound, directly to the bleeding site in just a few seconds. In clinical testing it has repeatedly shown itself to be able to quickly and reliably stop deep arterial bleeds.
Celox’s™ unique, patented and natural formula, works independently of the body’s normal clotting mechanisms to robustly clot blood even where normal blood clotting is slow or impaired.
Craig Hardy, CEO of MedTrade, said “Celox™-A was developed with advice from a member of the US Navy Seals. It has received been extremely well received in the US following its launch in April 08. I have already have reports of 2 lives being saved in Afghanistan using Celox™-A. It is now fantastic to be able to offer this solution within the EC to European police, ambulance and military medics.”
