A Race You Can’t Afford to Lose
Patients with multiple complex injuries need immediate attention. Trauma’s lethal triad instantaneously triggers a rapid cascade of conditions, necessitating temperature and fluid management. When addressing post-cardiac arrest, the current recommendation by the ALS Task Force of International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) is to start hypothermia as soon as possible.2 Set the pace in emergency medicine with agility and ease and discover peace of mind with the right solutions at hand.
How We Help
Your Partner in Trauma
Be prepared to massively transfuse normothermic, life-saving blood and fluids at the touch of a button. The Belmont® Rapid Infuser RI-2 is designed to reduce response time and free up vital resources during rapid fluid administration. On-screen instructions, quick setup, and automatic priming allow for a single technician to adequately monitor and operate the device, while highly efficient inductive heating precisely warms fluid in a single pass.
When it Comes to TTM, the Clock is Ticking
Cardiac arrest, stroke, and traumatic brain injury can severely impair neurological function. Therapeutic hypothermia–best documented for preserving brain function in post-cardiac arrest patients with some evidence of efficacy for TBI and stroke–must begin as soon as possible.3 Clinicians turn to Belmont’s CritiCool® for cooling and patient temperature management they can trust. CritiCool puts you in control of patient body temperature, with a simple interface and an easy-to-apply body-shaped CureWrap™ garment that adheres to itself, not the patient’s skin.
“Thanks to the Belmont system, we were able to transfuse large amounts of life-sustaining blood products (including whole blood) and fluids in a short amount of time. Without a doubt in my mind, the Belmont helped to save the lives of countless U.S. coalition and Iraqi soldiers and civilians.”— Army CRNA, Eight Years of Active Duty in Iraq
“Mild therapeutic hypothermia (32°C to 34°C) improves outcome of comatose survivors of witnessed OHCA (out-of-hospital cardiac arrest) when the initial rhythm is VF (ventricular fibrillation )...”— American Heart Association 2013 Consensus Recommendations
