High Performance at a Compact and Light Weight Form Factor and Significantly Lower Per Use Price!
The Warrior lite has been designed to support the needs of space and weight constrained first responders rescue gears and critical care transports for a lightweight and compact solution, while delivering non-compromising levels of performance (among all battery-operable solutions, the Warrior lite performance is only second to that of the Warrior and the Warrior EXTREME configurations). Not only that it delivers very high performance levels, but it also accomplishes this at a significantly lower cost of ownership compared with all modern battery-operable warmers; a true win-win solution. The Warrior lite –
- Warms near freezing blood/IV fluids at up to 180 ml/min (Extra Power battery), vs. 100-150ml/min of alternative solutions;
- Warm up to 3 liters (Extra Power battery) of near freezing blood/IV fluids with a single charge (vs. 1-2 liters);
- Uniquely validated to handle intense and intermittent bolus flows (more below)
- Is 50-70% more economical on a per-use basis!
The Warrior lite is a 3-part system composed of a controller (or Base Unit), battery, and per-patient warmer (i.e. disposable unit). Several accessories are offered so as to optimize the offering to the specific operating environments, such as mount accessory and extension cable. Assembly is simple and fail-safe, and takes seconds to accomplish. Blood/IV fluids will be warmed almost from the first drop, even at high resuscitation rates. The LED display is designed to support night-vision goggles. The consumable’s fluid path is aluminum-free, thus eliminating toxicity concerns associated with aluminum. Instead, the consumable uses patented medical-grade stainless steel warming technology. The efficiency of our technology ensures immediate warming. The system measures fluid temperatures a few hundred times per second and automatically adjusts the heating to ensure 38°C (±2°C) output. Thus, the Warrior lite handles intermittent bolus flows generated by intense push-pull resuscitation methods (e.g. hand pump, syringe, or LifeFlow-like devices), exceptionally well. The technology has been perfected over many thousands of field utilizations.
