Celox™ Rapid Ribbon Gauze


The first compact carry minimal compression time gauze for narrow entry wounds.




CeloxTM Rapid Ribbon brings all the benefits of Celox Rapid Gauze in a 1 inch strip. The low profile pack means Celox Rapid Ribbon is easily concealed and the reduced size makes it ideal for treating narrow entry wounds such as bullet, blast fragment and stab injuries.


The Best Solution for Direct Threat Care

Celox Rapid considerably reduces treatment time compared to Combat GauzeTM and ChitoGauzeTM, by on average halving the packing time of the competitive 12ft gauzes1 and speeding up compression time2, both in laboratory tests. Independent laboratory testing has shown that the reduced treatment time offered by Celox Rapid significantly reduces blood loss in comparison to Combat Gauze3 and evacuation tests have shown that Celox Rapid maintains its volume and adhesion to wet tissue during use, with no re-bleeding and hemostasis maintained during transport4.
