Hemostatics that work. STAT.

Celox was originally used to save lives on the battlefield by stopping the most catastrophic bleeding in minutes. In a civilian medical emergency treating bleeding casualties quickly and effectively is just as vital. The casualty may have been bleeding for some time before arriving on scene. They may be going into shock, hypothermic or developing coagulopathies that inhibit attempts to arrest blood loss. To complicate situations more, millions of Americans take the anti-platelet drugs and anticoagulants such as Heparin and Warfarin (Coumadin) that affect the body’s natural blood clotting cascade. Attempts to control bleeding with direct pressure alone may be ineffective and some mineral-based hemostatic agents work by accelerating part of the clotting cascade which may be less effective if the clotting cascade does not function normally.

Celox Granules work independently of the body’s clotting mechanism. Celox Granules can even clot hypothermic blood and blood containing blood thinning drugs Warfarin (Coumadin) or Heparin*.

Trauma in the USA.

Every year thousands of trauma victims die of hemorrhage from assault, motor vehicle accident, workplace and domestic accidents. Trauma is the leading cause of death of Americans between the ages of 1 and 46 years old. That’s more than 192,000 people in the US that lose their lives due to trauma every year. Trauma accounts for 41 Million Emergency Room visits.31
