The Quantum Blood & Fluid Warming System is THE prehospital solution for fluid resuscitation. Recent studies have shown that the delivery of whole blood or IV fluids without optimal warming presents a significant risk factor for the onset of hypothermia in trauma victims*. Even a small decrease in body temperature, can interfere with blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding to death. Once conditions deteriorate it is difficult to reverse. Be proactive & take immediate action where it matters most - at or near the point of injury with the lightweight, powerful Quantum.
