Combat Casualty Care Warming Blankets & DataTherm
RG Medical Diagnostics offers an advanced Hypothermia Management System. This treatment platform consists of active warming blankets for the maintenance of normothermia and treatment of hypothermia as well as a continuous temperature monitor for assessing and monitoring hypothermia treatment. Each of these products are Class II FDA accepted medical devices.
The Geratherm® Mini Rescue II and Super Mini Rescue II feature a conductive polymer, Kevlar reinforced, heating panel that actively warms the patient. The Mini Rescue II and Super Mini Rescue II measure 19” x 33” and 19” x 19” respectively. The systems feature a credit card sized embedded dual temperature controller that can be set to 98.6oF for the maintenance of normothermia or 104oF for treating hypothermia. A microprocessor continuously monitors the blanket to ensure the blanket temperature is within 2oF of the selected setting. These devices are compact and portable making them ideal for use during transport of the injured warfighter from a remote environment to the point of care.
Multiple power sources are available including a rechargeable 2590 Lithium Ion battery, a 120-240V AC Power Adapter, and a 12-28V DC air or ground vehicle power adapter. The rechargeable battery will supply 5-7 hours of warming on a single charge. Both systems can be stored and fielded in a compact shoulder carried soft case that weighs less than 7 pounds.
The DataTherm® II Continuous Temperature Monitor is a companion product to the Mini Rescue II and Super Mini Rescue II warming blankets. It is invaluable for monitoring core body temperature with a temperature monitoring range of 62.6oF to 113oF. Audible and visual alarms alert medics that the core body temperature is above or below pre-determined parameters. The DataTherm II features a 1 meter or 2 meter disposable temperature probe with multi-site application such as the axilla, esophageal or rectal.
When combined with an insulated litter or wrap, the Geratherm Mini Rescue II, Super Mini Rescue II, and DataTherm II provide a treatment platform that is ideally suited for use in all types of rescue environments. Warfighters can now benefit from aggressive treatment and prevention of hypothermia via active warming that is available from the point of rescue to a medical facility.Or….
