Belmont(R) Rapid Infuser Helps Save Officer's Life
Date:12/3/2008

BILLERICA, Mass., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Belmont(R) Rapid Infuser, a medical device used extensively in Combat Support Hospitals to treat wounded soldiers, civilians, and enemy combatants in Iraq, is credited with helping to save the life of an Omaha, NE Police Officer.

The officer was shot three times during a traffic stop. One of the bullets hit him in the abdomen and traveled down his leg rupturing a major artery.

"Injury to this area is often lethal... when he arrived here he obviously had an abdomen completely full of blood," stated Dr. Robert Fitzgibbons, Jr. (Creighton University Medical Center). "He still had brain activity... but he had no pulse. He had no blood pressure."

A Belmont infuser is what doctors believe made this medical miracle possible. Dr. Nahel Saied, also of Creighton University Medical Center, said that "the Belmont Infuser made it possible for the officer to recover during the critical phase, and now is moving to the next phase of treatment."

The Belmont(R) Rapid Infuser, initially designed for use by the military for cases requiring massive blood transfusion, is now used in high blood loss surgical procedures and severe trauma cases in major medical centers throughout the country.

George Herzlinger, President and founder of Belmont, commented, "The hard-working people at our company are proud that our rapid infuser has helped surgeons and physicians save lives in critical situations such as is reported here."

Belmont Instrument Corporation, founded in 1980, has developed some of the most sophisticated and reliable devices in fluid management and cardiac assist. Today Belmont's medical devices are used to save lives in hundreds of procedures in combat support hospitals under the most stressful conditions in the war zone in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in more than 35,000 procedures per year in hospitals throughout
