ER Critical Care Personnel Needs Warm IV Fluids, Warm Blood, and a Rapid Infuser. Stat!
As Preventing hypothermia in hemorrhagic shock victims is becoming increasingly more difficult, the technological advances found in medical equipment must fit the needs of the ER Critical Care personnel, as it relates to their job of saving lives, is dependent upon the combination of technologies.
Whether its EMT, EMS, or ER Critical Care personnel, they must all be able to deliver controlled volumes of warm IV fluids or warm blood in a critical environment to address the concerns of shock induced hypothermia. It’s critical, rapid, requires a blood warmer and a blood infuser and stat! Meaning now.
Medical devices or medical equipment and its technological advances are saving lives, every second of every minute, every day! We aree going to talk about a few of them such as the enFlow IV Fluid Blood Warmer, enErgy 1 model 302 (Enginivity LLC, Vital Signs Inc., a GE Healthcare Company), The Belmont Rapid Infuser or The Belmont Fluid Management System (The Belmont FMS2000 by Belmont Instrument Corp. which requires the Universal 3 Spike Disposable Set 903-00006, are essential life savers in the ER. Nobody knows this better than that of the Critical Care Staff. Which, like the 3-Spike Disposable set are the guts of the Rapid Infuser, the Critical Care Staff are the guts of the ER. IMO.
Did you Know… The Belmont® Rapid Infuser, also known as The Belmont Instrument Fluid Management System (Belmont FMS 2000) was used on multiple Boston Marathon bombing victims and has helped save thousands of lives???
The Belmont Rapid Infuser is commonly used in the Operating Room during liver transplant surgeries, trauma and any other place where incidents of massive blood loss occur. Also can be found in the Labor and Delivery Rooms inside the ER or Hospitals Labor and Delivery Department. A serious complication that can occur during or after childbirth that the mother may suffer from is called an obstetric hemorrhage.
According to the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, “a massive obstetric hemorrhage, resulting from the failure of normal obstetrical, surgical and/or systemic hemostasis, is responsible for 25% of the estimated 358,000 maternal deaths each year. Most women will not have identifiable risk factors. Nonetheless, primary prevention of a postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) begins with an assessment of identifiable risk factors. Women identified as being at high risk of a PPH should be delivered in a center with access to adequately trained staff and an onsite blood bank. A critical feature of a massive hemorrhage in obstetrics is the development of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), which, in contrast to DIC that develops with hemorrhage from surgery or trauma, is frequently an early feature. Data from clinical trials to guide management of transfusion in PPH are lacking. There are likely to be similarities in the management of transfusion in severe PPH to that of major bleeding in other clinical situations, but the pathophysiological processes that contribute to a massive PPH may necessitate different transfusion strategies.”
