Military

Combat-tested. Military hospital-trusted. Ready for anything.

On the front lines of critical care, military medical personnel know what they need: durability, ease of use, and the proven track record of saving lives in even the most harrowing conditions.

That’s where you’ll find Belmont—on battlefields, during air transport evac, and in military hospitals. Because, when seconds count, you want the best.

Blood and Fluid Warmers Positioned for Pivotal Moments

Belmont solutions blend technical inspiration with an uncompromising quality standard, to give military medical personnel added power to change the course of medical trauma. 

The Belmont® Rapid Infuser RI-2, known by many service personnel simply as “The Belmont,” has been trusted in the most extreme situations for more than 20 years. Our Rapid Infuser delivers life-saving warmed blood and fluid at the touch of a button—quickly, reliably, and bubble-free. 

Similarly, our buddy lite™ is a remarkably compact, portable, battery-powered blood and fluid warmer. Originally designed based on the needs of deployed armed forces and weighing less than 1.6 lbs. (730 grams), buddy lite has been used globally in war zones to help prevent hypothermia during fluid administration. Military medical bags to store the device, battery, disposables, AC/DC power supply, and optional vehicle charger are available.

 

Testimonials

" We were able to sustain their lives long enough so the surgeons could fix them. When we were in Baghdad, we pumped over 100 units of blood products through the Belmont on this single patient, and ten years ago…he would not have lived."

— Army CRNA after returning from Iraq

Testimonials

“What I like about it is, it’s easy to use, easy to train somebody on, it never broke down on us. It always worked and saved plenty of lives.”

— United States Navy Reserve LCDR NC

Testimonials

“I have operated the Belmont through hundreds of bags of blood. Many injuries here in Afghanistan are very traumatic, because of the enemies’ use of the IED (improvised explosive device), injuries such as multiple amputations of extremities, blast injuries, gunshot wounds, and others. Your pump has given me witness to bringing multiple GI’s back to life, because of the rapid administration of blood products your pump provides.”
