Rewarming hypothermia victims works best when the heat is applied to their body, not just the inside of the ambulance. TheMini-Rescue Warming Blanket fromRG Medical Diagnostics delivers heat where itÌs needed mostÛon the patient. Powered by a compact battery pack or wall plug adaptor, the blanket quickly reaches 98.6_F (37_C). It maintains a constant temperature and evenly distributes heat. The Mini-Rescue has a durable waterproof surface and can be laid directly on the patient. Cover it with a regular blanket to retain even more heat. All components are reusable, and after cleaning, it packs into a compact carrying case.
