Thermal Angel Supports Infection Control During the Golden Hour
Date:4/27/2009

DALLAS, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Estill Medical Technologies, Inc., the industry leader in portable blood and IV fluid warming therapy, announces the expansion of its Thermal Angel sales and marketing efforts. The Thermal Angel reduces the chance of mortality by quickly controlling core body temperature and infection risk.

The Thermal Angel is crucial to critical care administration. In emergency medicine, the golden hour refers to the first 60 minutes after the occurrence of a multi-system trauma. It is widely believed that the victim's survival chances are greatest if they receive definitive care within this first hour of injury.

So, how does the Thermal Angel work? It is portable, battery-powered, and disposable. It warms IV fluid and blood and is capable of initiating intravenous application within 45 seconds. It also prevents fluid-induced hypothermia, which can create numerous life-threatening conditions.

"Due to its portable and adaptive nature," Jay Lopez, president of Estill Medical Technologies, Inc. says, "we've had 93 countries request the Thermal Angel, but our primary focus has been to provide supplies for our military troops."

A platoon medic with the U.S. Army Ranger Regiment explains that, "The Thermal Angel Blood and IV Infusion Warmer is an excellent piece of medical equipment; it's essential to our deployment packing list. It's compact, lightweight, and easy to use."

A military medic must be economical in his choice of equipment and the Thermal Angel is cost efficient and requires minimal time for charging and operation. And, because the Thermal Angel is disposable, infection control becomes much more manageable. It also provides peace of mind should unexpected situations such as delays occur.

"As a result of the success our military has had using the Thermal Angel in medical field kits, on Black Hawk helicopters, and in ground vehicles, we are finding more civilian advanced life support agencies and hospitals accelerating adoption of the Thermal Angel for their trauma and surgery patients," Lopez says.

The Thermal Angel's mission is two-fold: to sustain life and to bring troops home safely. Trauma situations require immediate attention and should be focused on patient care, not on managing complex equipment.
