Below are the key reasons for hospitals to use the Warrior line as a bridge to their rapid infusers:
In greater details:
Rapid infusers are a great option for treating patients with severe hemorrhage. However, they require significant commitment from the hospitals: they are expensive to purchase, expensive to operate, and expensive to maintain. As importantly, they require significant ongoing investment in training so as to keep the staff adequately comfortable using them. Too often emergency personnel would avoid using their state-of-the-art rapid infusers simply because they are overwhelmed with their complex operation and time-consuming troubleshooting.
Therefore, a growing number of hospitals are approaching us with a similar request: “we need a bridge to the rapid infusers”, they say. Indeed, there are other more practical solutions to transfuse warm blood fast. When used with flow-inducing devices such as pressure bag, hand pump, push-pull, electro-mechanical pump, or LifeFlow infuser, the Warrior line of next-generation blood warmers is an excellent bridge to the rapid infusers, due to the following reasons:
To summarize, even the best-equipped medical centers are too often reluctant to use their rapid infusers due to their complexity. In such cases, therefore, the patients will get cold blood/fluid. While the Warrior is not a rapid infuser, it will outperform rapid infusers in greater than 95% of the cases, when just a few units of blood/fluid are required. In such cases, the Warrior will perform the job faster, more effectively, and more economically than the over-sized, complex, and expensive to operate rapid infusers. Even in those few cases that rapid infusers are required, the Warrior can be used initially so as to accelerate the delivery of the first few units of blood to the patient. In all these cases, the Warrior acts as an optimal bridge to the rapid infusers.
