PREHOSPITAL APPLICATIONS

Compact, High Performance, and Exceptionally Safe…

Every second counts at the point of injury and during prehospital transports to the next level of care. Therefore, first responders (EMS, Fire Departments, HEMS, Tactical Teams, Search & Rescue Teams, Mountain rescue teams, etc.) must rely on equipment that on the one hand is lightweight, portable, failsafe to assemble, easy to operate, and highly reliable, yet on the other hand it delivers uncompromising hospital-grade performance in the field.

Airborne operation adds an additional level of complexity since the equipment must comply with the stringiest safe-to-fly requirements. Furthermore, the volume of transport calls demands a solution that is commercially affordable. All these properties are cornerstone design considerations for the Warrior lite, which is offered with 2 battery-size options for optimal operational fit:

  • lite Battery: With the smaller & lighter battery (aka “lite” battery), the Warrior lite system can warm up to 1.3-2.5 liters of blood/fluids with a single battery charge at up to 170-250 ml/minute*. The operational weight of the Warrior lite with lite battery is ~800 grams (Base Unit and battery)
  • Extra Power Battery: With the larger battery (aka “Extra Power” battery), the Warrior lite system can warm up to 3-5 liters of blood/fluids with a single battery charge at up to 180-270 ml/minute*. The operational weight of the Warrior lite with Extra Power battery is ~1.1 kg (Base Unit and battery)

The Warrior lite also offer an excellent ability to deal with rapid intermittent bolus flows such as those generated via traditional push-pull methods, hand pumps, syringes, or other flow-inducing devices such as LifeFlow™, which are fairly common in trauma and medical emergency settings.

For long transports, or when highest delivery rates are required, or when highest battery capacity is needed, we recommend the Warrior and the Warrior EXTREME configurations (civil and military configurations, respectively). These configurations deliver the best field performance compared with all battery-operable warmers, offering a delivery rate of up 3-5 liters of blood/fluids with a single battery charge at up to 200-290 ml/minute*.

Recommended Configurations

Warrior lite

PRE-HOSPITAL APPLICATIONS & MILITARY

Its high performance, compact form factor, and light weight makes the battery-operated Warrior lite an optimal configuration for space and weight constrained rescue gears, first responders, and critical care transports.

The Warrior lite offers two battery configurations for optimal operational fit: the lite battery (from KVO and up to 170-250 ml/min*; 1.3-2.5 liters with a single charge*; 800g**) and the Extra Power battery (from KVO and up to 180-270 ml/min*; 3-5 liters with a single charge*; 1.1 kg**). The Extra Power battery is ideal when large warming volume capacity is required so as to address prolonged transports, back-to-back calls, or multiple patients’ scenario (MCI).

The Warrior lite utilizes the same disposable unit that is used by all other Warrior configurations; thus, facilitating a continuum of care implementation.

Warrior & Warrior EXTREME

PRE-HOSPITAL APPLICATIONS & MILITARY

With its unmatched performance (from KVO and up to 200-290 ml/min*), the battery-operated Warrior is an ideal blood/IV fluid warming solution for mid- to long-haul critical care transports as well as for emergency departments that advocate simplicity and portability. Its performance makes a huge difference in environments in which rapid bolus flows are applied in an intermittent fashion.

The Warrior EXTREME is the ruggedized version of the Warrior Base Unit, for harsh (combat) operating environments. The performance of both devices is identical. The key differences are in the compliance framework. More specifically, the Warrior EXTREME complies with MIL-STD 461G RE102 and RS103 and certified for higher Ingress Protection (IP) rating (IP56).

The Warrior and Warrior EXTREME share the same accessories. They also utilize the same disposable unit that is used by all other Warrior configurations; thus, facilitating a continuum of care implementation.

“It is a great warming device. Makes a difference in patient outcomes. Well designed and I have not one thought of changing to another project.”

Why Warrior and Warrior lite?

Our Warrior and Warrior lite lines are being used across the entire continuum of care by first responders, ground providers, air medical transports, and hospitals (Emergency Departments, Trauma bays, Surgery, and Intensive Care units) to warm RBC, whole blood, plasma, and clear fluids. When every second counts, the Warrior and Warrior lite lines make a huge difference:

Keeping Trauma Patients Warm Is Critical!

Thermal management is a key component in the survivability rates of trauma patients. Our mission is to completely eliminate the challenges of warming blood and IV fluid from the entire continuum of emergency care so that emergency care professionals will be able to focus on what they do best- saving lives.

We are having amazing success and save cases this past year [2020]. Just last week we infused a unit of WARMED LTOWB in 2 min [250ml/min]. The patient received 3 on-the-ground and 2 in flight and survived a non-survivable GSW [gunshot wound] to the chest!

I have never seen any portable blood and IV fluid warmer that approximates the performance of the Warrior... The warming range, warming speed, flow rates and battery capacity are outstanding... Well done!

We had a multiple gunshot wound patient on Saturday with a blood pressure in the 60s. Got whole blood via the Warrior with a hand off to Life Flight and their Warrior worked great - hand off was seamless.
