SAM Medical Celox Trauma Gauze
When an emergency medical technician is treating a victim, time spent searching for the right gear could be the difference between life and death. Celox trauma gauze is the only two-in-one gauze that can both seal gashes and cool burns. Woven from chitosan fibers, a blood-clotting agent derived from shrimp shells, it absorbs 16 times its weight in blood. For burn victims, medics can wrap the wound and then soak it with water to turn the bandage into a gel that evaporates to cool burns by 10ºF for 20 hours. Military medics looking to lighten their load have already placed orders for the multitasking gauze.
Nice!! Multifunctional! Not only can it be used on both blood and burns, but it can also cool and treat burns.
Use 50:50 water/glycerin and you'll get much better results for healing. Would inhibit evaporation/cooling, tho', because it holds onto water tightly.
Again, technology at work. I am impressed and it never ceases to amaze me at how ingenious some individual and groups are. To enable emergency treatment, without having to search for the correct materials is possible life saving.
