Avalanche rescue teams have to protect their emergency equipment from the cold. The search for avalanche victims can often take several hours until they are found, meaning that the IV drip fluid can get too cold. Even if the fluids are used faster, such as in ski accidents, etc., in extremely cold temperatures emergency equipment also has to be protected.
ALPENHEAT has developed a heated outer bag that protects the IV infusion fluid from getting too cold. Using Alpenheat’s proven rechargeable battery that gives up to 24 hours of heat, infusion fluids are kept warm, providing the ideal solution to protect vital fluids from low temperatures.
