Introducing ChitoGauze PRO, a revolutionary hemostatic dressing for the external, temporary control of severely bleeding wounds. It is the next generation of chitosan dressing that is composed of a polyester/rayon blend non-woven medical gauze that is coated with chitosan. It is Z-folded and packaged in a custom North American Rescue vacuum sealed pouch that is compact, rugged and features Red-Tip Technology.
ChitoGauze PRO maximizes hemostatic performance and reduces the risk of re-bleeding by providing effective hemostasis outside of the normal clotting cascade. ChitoGauze PRO also has natural antibacterial properties against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative microorganisms which may help reduce the risk of infection due to debris and the environment before the casualty receives advanced treatment.
