We have invented a new IV-blood warmer for emergency transfusions. It’s a portable fluid warmer which warms up blood from cold to body temperature within seconds. We call it the °M Warmer System
Hypothermia is a condition where the body’s own heat production can’t match the heat loss to the environment resulting in a lowered body core temperature. Trauma patients do not die from hypothermia itself – they die of bleeding. Bleeding makes the body loose important oxygen-carrying red blood cells used to carry oxygen to the brain and other vital organs.
Trauma patients with substantial bleeding are at risk of entering into the deadly trauma triad of hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulopathy. This combination (The Trauma Triad of Death) means that when the body core temperature drops, the acidity in the blood increases and the blood loses its ability to coagulate. Without coagulation, it is much more difficult to stop the bleeding and save the life of the patient.
In trauma situations, paramedics often have to act fast. Minutes are crucial and requires products that are very intuitive and easy to implement – so the vital treatments can start as soon as possible.
Based on user insights and findings we have discovered the importance of making super simple products with no unnecessary features.
We have a unique patented technology that can almost instantly warm up the fluid. The °M warmer will heat fluid from 5°C to 37°C just before it enters into the patients bloodstream.
We are located in COBIS, Copenhagen Bio Science part together with other buzzing and busy MedTech and BioTech start-ups.
