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

Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
