HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro


HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro has evolved from HemCon’s highly effective ChitoGauze® dressing.  It now features a radio-opaque strip making the dressing easy to identify during X-Ray investigation.  HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro is a haemostatic gauze dressing designed to control moderate to very severe haemorrhage.

HemCon has one of the best reputations in the development of haemostatic agents, with the famous and long-established “4×4 HemCon” dressing.  HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro represents the latest generation of topical wound haemostatic agents from HemCon.

HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro readily conforms to a wide range of wound profiles, allowing easy wound packing and rapid control of bleeding.  The chitosan is impregnated through the dressing, and specifically designed to limit particle shedding into the wound, unlike other currently available dressings.

With its reputation in providing leading solutions for pre-hospital trauma care, Prometheus Medical has worked closely with HemCon to ensure that HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro is delivered in optimal form for operational use. We believe HemCon ChitoGauze® XR Pro is the best topical haemostatic agent available anywhere today.
