How To Use Celox
Using Celox is easy. You just apply it to the bleeding area and apply pressure. This pressure forces the Celox into close contact with the bleeding area.
For minor bleeding, finger tip pressure is effective and an efficient clot will form in 30 seconds.
For more major bleeding full compression (as taught as part of First Aid Training) for 3 minutes is required. This gives the Celox gel plug time to form and strengthen to hold back major bleeding.
Celox flakes swell, gel, and stick together when in contact with blood to make a gel like plug. This pseudo-clot sticks well to moist tissue to plug the bleeding site.
