DALLAS, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As Washington policymakers grapple with health care reform legislation, Texas-based Estill Medical Technologies, Inc. -- the maker of the high-tech Thermal Angel Blood and IV Fluid Infusion Warmer -- is delivering high-impact, low-cost healthcare solutions on the battlefield, in hospitals, and at the scene of trauma incidents throughout the United States, said Jay Lopez, Estill's president and chief operating officer.
"While members of Congress are deliberating about how to fix our nation's health care system, the Thermal Angel utilizes the best technology available to save American lives and dollars at home and abroad," said Lopez, whose company has become an industry leader.
The Thermal Angel, a patented medical device being utilized by U.S. government, military and emergency responders, is crucial to critical care administration because it helps prevent a trauma victim's core body temperature from dropping to a hypothermic level.
Why is it so effective? Previously medics generally warmed an IV bag using their own body heat or a cumbersome AC-powered fluid warmer. With a battery-operated Thermal Angel, medical staff are able to infuse blood and IV fluids at a continuously regulated 38 degrees Celsius.
Disposable and lightweight (only 9 oz.), the Thermal Angel utilizes advanced technology which regulates temperature almost 5,000 times per second. It also requires only 30 seconds to set up and start delivering warm fluid in either a battlefield or commercial healthcare setting.
Jay Lopez, along with his father, Leonard Lopez, the company's chairman, and his brother, Brandon Lopez, vice president of operations and business development, run the family-owned business in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
