By Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology(SCTIMST)
Even though Hypothermia is most common in patients who are exposed to a cold environment, it can develop secondary toxin exposure, metabolic derangements, infections, and dysfunction of the central nervous and endocrine systems Fluid warming is a method of raising the temperature of fluids administered to a patient to maintain normal body temperature and prevent hypothermia.
Product Design and Silent Features
A blood and IV fluids warming system suitable for slow as well as rapid transfusion using infrared radiations emitted from distributed low power IR LEDs. The system consists of a bag warming chamber and an inline IV tube warming cartridge having infrared light emitting diodes distributed throughout the inner surface and connected to a power controller. For rapid transfusion, bag can be placed inside the bag warming chamber and the IV tube is passed through the small cartridge before connecting to the patient.
Development Stage
Prototype developed. Industry shall collaborate and take forward the evaluations and commercialization.
