resolves cases of hypothermia in first aid situations
Preventing the threat of hypothermia at the pre-clinical stage when rescuing people who are trapped is of fundamental importance, and is often difficult to achieve within a limited timeframe.
According to studies conducted by experts, up to 66% of multiple trauma patients are suffering from hypothermia upon admittance to hospital, with a very high risk of worsening their condition.
This is the situation rescue services such as the fire brigade, the Civil Defence organisation and the Red Cross find themselves up against, often without adequate means to immediately raise the temperature of the individuals they need to rescue. These are often complex, varied situations, where more immediate, flexible, manageable and effective solutions are often required. In accidents and disasters, preventing hypothermia is of fundamental importance, and must be done quickly, in order to reduce rescue times and/or to keep them within a maximum of 20-60 minutes (golden hour)
The HYPOTHERMSAVE® appliance –
which allows for rapid, simple, effective intervention, without interfering with other activities going on at the same time – helps to provide the same immediate warmth and wellbeing as the sun. In addition, the ergonomic characteristics of the appliance make it easy for rescuers to use manually, and also allow for use on telescopic supports on the ground.
At the request of experts and researchers, Star Progetti Tecnologie Applicate Spa has invested its technology and experience in infrared appliances to come up with a product able to prevent hypothermia in the various situations in which it can arise.
