EMPOWERING PARAMEDICS TO SAVE LIVES
In trauma situations, paramedics must act fast as minutes are crucial. Patients with substantial bleeding are at risk of hypothermia and when the body core temperature drops, the acidity in the blood increases and the blood loses its ability to coagulate, making it more difficult to stop the bleeding and save the life of the patient1.
As initiating blood transfusion in the prehospital setting has proven to reduce mortality2, the °M Warmer System can help prevent hypothermia and the related complications.
The °M Warmer System is small and has a fast and easy setup, making it intuitive and easy to use for paramedics when the need is there.

“We chose the °M Warmer System as it’s compact, easy to use, and works reliably. The fact that it’s battery powered is also important for us, as we have access to electricity in the ambulance but not on the ground. Blood is stored at 4-6°C in the physician-staffed EMS car, and it needs to be warmed immediately to body temperature for use in a transfusion.”
