Hypothermia prevention is critical to the management of trauma patients, but often neglected in casualty evacuation. Typically, mylar blankets are used to cover patients which can have limited prevention of heat loss. The QuikLitter™ Blizzard is an integrated solution for both evacuation and outstanding hypothermia prevention. The QuikLitter Blizzard combines our popular QuikLitter with the PerSys Blizzard Hypothermia Blanket.
Utilizing ReflexCell technology, the Blizzard EMS Blanket provides an effective and direct route for patient stabilization and the treatment of hypothermia caused by environmental exposure, traumatic injury causing blood loss, and other conditions affecting the body’s ability to regulate its core temperature.
The EMS Blizzard Blanket completely surrounds the patient in insulating material, greatly reducing the effects of wind and convective cooling on the patient. The blanket can be easily opened for patient assessment and then re-sealed. Since the blanket is attached to the litter with Velcro, they can easily be separated for independent use, but stays in place in windy conditions or on sloped surfaces.
QuikLitter is rated to carry a 500 lb load.
