Even a small decrease in body temperature can interfere with blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding to death. Hypothermia is a problem for all trauma patients, even in warmer climates.  Fluid Resuscitation without optimally warmed Whole Blood or IV Fluids is shown to be a significant risk factor for the onset of hypothermia*. Once conditions deteriorate it is difficult to reverse. Be proactive & take immediate action where it matters most: at the Point of Injury with the Quantum System!
