IDEAL BLOOD WARMER FOR EMERGENCY TRANSFUSIONS IN THE AIR
Being able to provide emergency transfusion in the air, is essential for more and more Helicopter Emergency Services.
The °M Warmer System provides a fast and foolproof setup and allows for vital treatments to start as soon as possible.
The light weight and small volume of the °M Warmer minimize the equipment brought into the air, while still having the capacity to warm 4 bags of cold blood (5°C) on a single charge of the battery.
Moreover, the small single use warmer can be attached to the patient with the adhesive next to the IV entrance, thereby reducing the risk of pulling out the catheter during transport in the air.
APPROVED FOR AIRPLANES AND HELICOPTERS
The °M Warmer System is approved for use in helicopters and airplanes fulfilling the requirements from IEC 60601-1-12:2015, DIN EN 13718-1 and RTCA DO-160 section 21.
The °M Warmer system is classified IP 54 which documents that it is resistant against water, drop, and rough treatment.
“Size and weight were important for us when choosing a blood warmer. We wanted to find a reliable device that was stern enough to work in a hostile environment and reach the target temperature.
We use the °M Warmer for code red patients who need pre- hospital blood transfusions. It’s really simple to use and it basically does exactly what it is supposed to do.”
TCCC, NICE and ATLS are all well-recognized guidelines that cover best practices for warming fluids for transfusions in the fields of medical care and trauma care. Get an overview here.
Hypovolemic shock occurs to trauma patients because of the loss of body fluid volume. The effects of shock, rapidly become irreversible. Therefore, it is critical for medical professionals to begin interventions early.
