High Tech Vet Medical Warming System Introduced at Orlando
Date:1/24/2011

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lake Oswego, Oregon based ThermoGear, Inc., partnered with DVM Solutions, San Antonio, Texas, have announced the rollout of a new high technology veterinary surgical system that took place at the recent North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Florida.  The Chillbuster®VET Surgical Blanket and Cage Mat are called, "a huge advancement in animal care" by noteworthy Veterinarians who have been testing the system.

Mel Campf, President of ThermoGear, said, "The new Chillbuster®VET system is a safe temperature controlled and stabilized source of warmth for the pre-surgical, surgical and post-surgical care of animals."  The warming system consists of a surgical blanket, cage mat and single use disposable covers to keep the surgical and post surgical area clean and contamination free.  DVM Solutions is marketing and selling the new system in the U.S.

The Chillbuster®VET system contains technology developed by ThermoGear into human warming devices used by U.S. military forces based around the world.  The idea of using FDA cleared and Department of Defense approved warming technology for the veterinary medical area has been widely discussed then developed and thoroughly tested over a period of 18 months.

Well known Veterinarian, Dr. Tim Crowe, DVM, DAVS, DAVECC, FCCM said, "I have been testing the Chillbuster®VET Surgical Blanket and Cage Mat by ThermoGear for more than a year and have been very impressed with the results.  It is safe with no issues of burns; the blanket has performed hands down better than any other vet warming device available.  It is easy to use, warms rapidly and is extremely reliable.  I can readily see why the Chillbuster® human surgical warming blanket was selected by the U.S. Department of Defense for use by our combat forces in the Middle East."

Dr. Gary Norsworthy, DVM, DABVP of the Alamo Feline Center in San Antonio, said, "One of the major causes of surgical complications is hypothermia.  Being able to control intra and post surgical temperature helps to insure a successful outcome.  The Chillbuster®VET system is an efficient and safe way to control our patient's body temperature.  I use the system routinely in my practice."

As for the immediate future, Campf said ThermoGear will be developing a battery operated vet warming system for use in the field and expanding the product to accommodate servicing larger animals.  ThermoGear is currently seeking an international marketing and sales solution for the system.

Greg Piehl, President of DVM Solutions, emphasized that in addition to introducing the Chillbuster®VET surgical system at Orlando, his company will show the new vet warming devices at the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas, February 20-21.
