Danish company °MEQU has obtained 510(k) approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its portable blood and IV-fluid warming device, the °M Warmer System.

The °M Warmer System can assist military and civilian medical personnel in preventing hypothermia in patients experiencing haemorrhage by providing warmed transfusions and IV fluids at the point of injury, during transport, and in hospitals.

Featuring a user-friendly design, the system aligns with the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines on providing medical care.

These guidelines emphasise the importance of using battery-powered warming devices to administer IV/IO resuscitation fluids in combat conditions to mitigate hypothermia risks.

The system was developed in partnership with the Danish military and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) to enhance the survival and recovery rates of critically injured patients.

Before receiving FDA clearance, the °M Warmer System completed extensive trials with US military units and helicopter emergency medical services, demonstrating its ease of use, portability and high performance.
