PLANO, Texas – QinFlow, the manufacturer of the Warrior, a modular blood and IV fluid warming solution for the entire continuum of emergency care, is proud to announce that its Warrior solution was recently acknowledged for its superior performance in comparison to other battery-powered blood warmers in the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) recent update of its Advanced Resuscitative Care (ARC) Guidelines.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is the standard of care in Prehospital Battlefield Medicine. The TCCC Guidelines are routinely updated and published by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, a component of the Joint Trauma System. The TCCC committee recently released Advanced Resuscitative Care Guidelines. Download the full Guidelines here.
The new TCCC guidelines include the infusion of whole blood and the utilization of Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) to address Noncompressible torso hemorrhage (NCTH), the last remaining major cause of preventable death on the battlefield, that often causes death within 30 minutes of wounding.
For blood warmers, the study states “whole blood should be warmed during transfusion” and that “a recent review of battery-powered blood warmers found that the Warrior device (QinFlow, Tel-Aviv, Israel) performed better than the Buddy Lite and the Thermal Angel”.
“We are very proud with the TCCC acknowledgment”, said Ariel Katz, CEO QinFlow Inc. “The Warrior’s superior performance is derived from its underlying state-of-the-art, highly efficient and patent protected warming technology, which allows it to safely warm near-freeze fluids and blood products to body temperature extremely fast, even at high flow rates, thus allowing first responders, critical care transport teams, and emergency care professionals within the hospitals to focus on what they do best – saving lives”, he added.
Since 2009 QinFlow (short for Quality in Flow) has worked to develop and perfect a proprietary fluid warming technology (patented) that delivers unparalleled levels of warming efficiency. The company’s flagship product – the Warrior – provides front end rescue teams, first response teams, critical care transport teams, and emergency care professionals within various hospital settings with a high performance, reliable, simple to operate, and completely portable blood and IV fluid warming device that operates flawlessly in all environmental conditions in order to fight hypothermia and save lives. QinFlow is headquartered in Rosh Ha’ayin (Israel) and Plano TX (USA).
