Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) Adds Celox Gauze As approved Hemorrhage Treatment

ORLANDO, Fla., April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bio-Stat LLC, the exclusive US distributor of CELOX™ hemostatic dressings manufactured by MedTrade Products Ltd., a UK based medical device company, today announced that the US Department of Defense's Committee for Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) has added CELOX™ Gauze to its guidelines for control of hemorrhage as approved hemostatic agents for military-wide use.

Why CELOX™ works so well – Why the CTCCC approved CELOX™

CELOXTM Gauze contains a novel technology that allows it to work on the most severe bleeding where current treatments are not effective.  It looks like a simple gauze bandage but has been coated with Celox Granules to give unique properties.  In tests conducted by the US Navy, subjects treated with Celox had the highest rate of survival versus those treated with competing products or plain gauze.

Best Results over a wide range of conditions

Combat tested and in use by military forces the world over due to its proven ability to treat a wound with less total blood loss, Celox is the choice for any first response, tactical or emergency wound care.   In many of the worst injuries, the blood lost causes the body's natural clotting abilities to fail, but Celox acts independently of the body's mechanism and continues to work in this situation, where other treatments that work by accelerating the body's own clotting process can fail.  Celox is also effective under conditions where the patient is using blood thinners or where hypothermia has occurred.

CELOX™ Products Approved for all US Military Use and Procurement as Emergency Hemostat

Already in use by US Special Forces due to it's superior results, the approval of the CoTCCC makes CELOX™ Gauze a standard ordering and procurement hemostatic dressing for all branches of the US military. The CoTCCC decision now makes CELOX™ available to every member of the DOD's forces, and CELOX™ can be added to and reordered for all wound care and medical kits in US military use.

The US military review follows a recent trend in which increasing numbers of civilian emergency services are reviewing their equipment and taking on new treatments.  In a large part this is a response to tragedies such as the Boston Marathon bombing as well as new guidelines for responses to indiscriminate shootings.  For example, in the Massachusetts area around Boston the regional council for Homeland Security has prescribed new hemorrhage control kits that include the Celox bandages for their responders.

CELOX™ is exclusively available in the US from BioStat LLC

BioStat LLC, based in Orlando, FL and Medtrade Products Ltd, a UK-based medical devices company, have an arrangement for all U.S. sales and distribution responsibilities to be handled by BioStat, LLC for the CELOX™ portfolio of hemostatic agents.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
