CELOX Hemostatic Products

CELOX Hemostatic Products CELOX Hemostatic Products CELOX Hemostatic Products

FDA-Approved CELOX [CELL-ox] Products are redefining effective bleeding management. Bleeding has been stopped in much the same way it has been since the turn of the last century – until now. CELOX Granules, Gauze and Dressing are invaluable, potentially life-saving products that provide rapid, efficient hemostasis for men, women, children and seniors.

CELOX provides a range of hemostatic products to control bleeding from and around central venous catheter, fistula, and graft access sites. CELOX performance has been proven on the battlefield, in emergency and clinical settings, and in the laboratory.

CELOX is the only hemostat proven to rapidly stop bleeding even when blood and its ability to clot is compromised by use of anti-coagulant blood thinners like Coumadin, Warfarin, Plavix, Pradaxa or Xarelto. CELOX doesn't sting or burn and easily irrigates with water or saline.

CELOX products are not new. CELOX was created for use on military battlefields to stop severe bleeding in its tracks – in most cases instantaneously – even in extreme circumstances or challenging conditions. Now the same FDA-approved, military-strength, hospital-grade products are available for use in non-military markets – without a prescription. CELOX is classified by the FDA as an OTC medical device, not a pharmaceutical.

  • In the history of its use, there have been no reports of CELOX having failed or underperformed
  • CELOX – FDA /Health Canada/NATO approved & prestigious Class 3CE mark in Europe
  • Classified by FDA as an OTC medical device, not a pharmaceutical – for nosebleeds and minor, moderate and severe bleeding [not yet available in retail stores]
  • Only product proven to quickly stop bleeding for those on blood thinners like Coumadin, Warfarin, Heparin, Plavix, Pradaxa or Xarelto
  • Each product designed to be easily self-administered and used by those with no emergency or medical training
  • Cannot be over-used – No measuring or "dosing" needed
  • Reduces risk related to spread of blood-borne pathogens
  • Works for those with inherited or acquired bleeding or clotting disorders [like Hemophilia]
  • Does not sting, burn or generate heat
  • Easily washes away with water or saline – no debridement necessary
  • Because it is bio-compatible, remaining CELOX granules are safely absorbed

HemaStrap

HemaStrap HemaStrap

The HemaStrap, by Hema Assistance Products, is a lightweight fabric strap that is comfortable, easy to use, and does not interfere with dialysis or infusion treatment. It is designed to secure and stabilize dialysis/infusion tubing during patient treatment to minimize tugging and painful infiltration.

Our patented strap comes in three (3) different sizes: adult large and small, and youth for pediatrics. The adult sizes (Hemastrap HA 600-077 or HP 540-077)  can be adjusted quickly and easily by marking the hook area of the strap with a soft lead pencil or marker and trimming with scissors, leaving at least 3/4 of an inch of hooking. For most patients, adjustment of the youth Hemastrap (HY 540-077) will not be necessary.

The Hemastrap is designed to be worn around the patient’s wrist by inserting the hook strap through the black D-ring. Secure the strap by folding the hook fasteners, located at the end of the strap, against the felt. Loosen the infusion retainer straps on the dorsal surface of the wrist. After the infusion is started, secure the tubing under the retaining straps.

To place orders or for more information, a HemaStrap representative can be reached at 727-410-0150.

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze

INSTA-STOP® Hemostatic Gauze quickly controls and stops bleeding. INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is made from cotton, and is 100% plant-based with no animal products, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction or irritation. The 2x2 gauze pad is designed for dialysis patients, as it controls the bleeding quickly and easily.

When INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze is applied to a bleeding surface or wound with slight direct pressure, and comes in contact with blood, the blood is instantly absorbed. As the blood is absorbed, and INSTA-STOP expands, it blocks the end of the blood capillary from the injury, which controls and stops bleeding and protects the wound.

INSTA-STOP Hemostatic Gauze is ideal for patients who are taking anti-coagulation medication, patients taking medication with anti-coagulation side effects, and for patients with blood coagulation disorders and reduction in blood platelets.

Features and benefits:

  • Simple to use—just simply place it on a bleeding wound
  • Adheres to the wound and reduces re-bleeding
  • Allow use of both hands to complete bandaging
  • Chemical-free, no prescription needed
  • Safe for human use and the environment

INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze products are over-the-counter and have a 3-year shelf life (until opened). For more information, or to purchase INSTA-STOP hemostatic gauze, please call or email us at the numbers below.

Parker Anderson, Inc., designs, develops, patents, markets and sells Hemostatic Gauze products within the INSTA-STOP® brand family.

Redsense Blood Detector

Redsense Blood Detector

The Redsense safety device is designed to detect venous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis, for Home/Self and Clinical use.

Redsense consists of two parts: a sensor patch and an alarm unit. An infrared signal is transmitted from the alarm unit to the sensor patch using fibre optic cable. In the event of bleeding, inner layers of the patch smear blood over the optical sensor, which triggers the alarm.

The Redsense safety device is the results of close co-operation between medical staff and engineers. Dialysis equipment today is required to have a system which protects the patient from blood loss due to dislodgement of the venous needle. The commonly accepted solution is to monitor by the venous pressure alarm but a better solution has long been requested. Even with the routine supervision of medical staff still the venous needle can become dislodged: the dialysis machine will then continue to draw blood from the patient’s artery however not returning blood in the loop circuit as the venous needle has become dislodged and the patient’s blood ends up elsewhere. If undetected, this blood loss can have very serious consequences in only a few minutes. Redsense safety device provides a solution to this problem and detects venous needle dislodgement instantaneously; it only takes a few milliliters of blood on the sensor patch to sound the alarm.

Optimizing safety conditions for home hemodialysis users is a core ambition for Redsense Medical.

Redsense Medical has offices in Sweden and in the U.S. (Chicago, IL). For more information: www.redsensemedical.com.
