This z-folded hemostatic chitosan impregnated gauze dressing was designed specifically for the battlefield to quickly control severe hemorrhaging and save lives. Like Celox™ Gauze, it requires minimal training and entails no risk of remote clotting. It offers the advantage of being flat z-folded for smaller displacement.
A uniquely formulated dressing, Chitogauze™ XR Pro is flexible and ideal for a variety of applications and wound surfaces. Unlike some other hemostatic gauze, ChitoGauze™ offers antibacterial properties against 26 organisms including MRSA, VRE, and more. This gauze does not contain pro-clotting agents, providing a safe and localized hemostatic solution. Includes an X-ray detectable strip.
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 and unique characteristics of chitosan and HemCon's proprietary manufacturing process create ChitoGauze™, which slows the blood movement through the dressing, offering a local hemostatic solution. The chitosan in ChitoGauze™ binds red blood cells and platelets on the dressing's surface which provides localized clotting independently from the normal clotting cascade.
