HemCon ChitoGauze XR Pro Haemostatic Dressing

Prometheus ChitoGauze XR PRO by HemCon is designed specifically for the battlefield and emergency medical professionals to quickly control severe hemorrhaging and save lives. First haemostatic gauze with a z-folded design for easy handling and rapid application which readily conforms to varying wound surfaces to rapidly stop bleeding and seal the wound site. ChitoGauze PRO provides antibacterial properties against dangerous organisms and offers medical professionals and emergency responders critical time to administer care.

ChitoGauze XR PRO is a highly flexible dressing which readily conforms to varying wound surfaces to rapidly stop bleeding and seal the wound site. The natural, unique characteristics of chitosan and HemCon’s proprietary manufacturing process, together create ChitoGauze PRO which slows the blood movement through the dressing, offering a local haemostatic solution. The chitosan in ChitoGauze PRO binds red blood cells and platelets on the dressing’s surface which provides localized support for clotting independently from the normal clotting cascade.
