Life-Saving 'Thermal Angel' Blood Warmer Is Immediately Available For Use By U.S. Troops In Harm's Way
Date:7/15/2009

DALLAS, July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Thermal Angel, a patented medical product that helps U.S. government, military and emergency responders save lives, has now tripled production to assist American troops deployed or about to deploy throughout the world, it was announced Wednesday.

Jay Lopez, president and CEO of Dallas-based Estill Medical Technologies, Inc., said the battery-powered Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Warmer is "in stock and immediately available" for shipping to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and elsewhere around the globe.

The high-tech Thermal Angel helps to prevent a trauma victim's core body temperature from dropping to a hypothermic level. "The first 60 minutes after a trauma incident are often the most important. In fact, a substantial number of casualty deaths occur in the field, before the victim ever reaches a hospital. Having the Thermal Angel on the scene can make the difference between life and death," said Jay Lopez. Lopez, along with his father, Leonard Lopez, the company's chairman, and his brother, Brandon Lopez, vice president of operations and business development, runs the family business.

The Thermal Angel -- a small (9 inches/23 cm), disposable, lightweight (9 oz. /260 grams) medical device -- has become a mission-critical component of combat casualty care. "The Thermal Angel is being extensively used by the Marines to treat casualties in their portable operating rooms, the Forward Resuscitative Surgical System (FRSS). In fact, our product is so effective that we've sold it to every branch of the U.S. military, helping to ensure a high standard of care for our forces," said Brandon Lopez, in charge of production.

With five simple steps, the Thermal Angel Blood and IV Warmer will provide warm fluids within 45 se
