MilSys (UK) Ltd - Celox? haemostatic agent


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
MilSys (UK) Ltd
: 25 April, 2009  (Application Story)
On Saturday 11th April, Edale Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) was called to Stanage Edge, a popular gritstone climbing venue in Derbyshire Peak District. A 25 year old climber had fallen around 8m while abseiling.
The climber sustained very serious pelvic injuries which resulted in substantial, life threatening bleeding. Edale MRT members had been fundraising nearby and were able to reach the scene quickly. To control the bleeding, they used Celox™, a revolutionary new haemostatic agent, which they have adopted in the last few weeks. Celox™ helped stabilise the climber along with pain relieving morphine, oxygen and intravenous fluids, until he was evacuated to the top of the crag and then taken to Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital. He is now in hospital in a stable condition following emergency surgery on his pelvis and wrist.


It is believed that this is the first time Celox™ has been used by Mountain Rescue in the UK, and helped the Edale Mountain Rescue Team, East Midlands Ambulance Service and local Air Ambulance in their work to undoubtedly save his life.

MilSys (UK) Ltd is the UK distributer for Celox™, a revolutionary haemostatic agent that controls severe bleeding within minutes. It is easy, safe and effective to use as it works independently of the body’s own clotting mechanism, and will clot hypothermic blood and blood containing anti-coagulants. Celox™ does not generate heat, so can be used on any part of the body including, head, neck and chest wounds.

Celox™ is suitable for the military, first responders, hospitals, industrial first aid, emergency services, wilderness medicine, adventure pursuits, professional and amateur sports and of course, as a must-have for your home or car first aid kit.

Launch of Online Shop

Celox™ can now be purchased online for UK delivery. MilSys (UK) Ltd has recently launched their online shop where Celox™ and ancillary products can be purchased. With new products becoming available, the range of products is continually increasing, and our Customer Support Team is ready to provide any necessary assistance.
