This Compact Shock/Hypothermia Management Set gives you the Edge to turn the tide early in an Exposure or Trauma Scenario.
M.A.R.C.H.E. - Shock / Hypothermia
The Iridium Solutions Compact Shock/Hypothermia Management Set is a compact solution to provide early intervention for hypothermia patients, or trauma injuries that bring a hypothermia component.
The medical evidence clearly calls out loss of body heat as one of the main factors between surviving a trauma or exposure incident, and not. In fact, hypothermia is one of cornerstones of the Triad of Death, as it has immediate and lasting negative implications.
Even in warm temperatures, wet skin can lead to massive heat loss, as can losing large volumes of blood, or shock associated with head injuries and cardiac events.
For every degree of body heat lost, the clotting time of the blood rises exponentially, so treating massive hemorrhage casualties as hypothermia early has proven to increase survivability by as much as 20%. In the GWOT, battlefield injuries obtained even in 40C heat often presented with hypothermia components - imagine how much more quickly that might be the case outdoors in the Cold Canadian Winter.
This compact set, designed to be carried by remote, frontline responders and SAR technicians, could be the crucial difference between positive and negative outcomes.
At the heart of the Compact Shock/Hypothermia Management Set is the SOL Emergency Bivvy, a heat reflactive bivvy sac that the casualty can be placed into once they have been dried, or at least had wet clothing removed. The bivvy comes equipped with a rescue whistle for signalling in the case of self-use, and a length of fire cord to assist in staring a warming fire to aid in re-warming. The included tape card provides 60" of extra strength canadian made duct tape to repair snags or rips, secure additional padding, strap the patient to a litter or board, or even provide a potent tinder source for starting a fire.
Because we're not waiting on a fire in the cold or wet to begin the rewarming of our patient, we've also included six flameless heater pouches. They are meant to be placed on the trunk, in junctions and the axilla to begin active warming.
Each pad heats to 38C so it won't burn the patient, and each lasts for 8 hours, providing responders active warming for long periods while they dispatch definitive care.
Finally, each set is equipped with an industrial chemlight (white), which provides waterproof, weatherproof light without heat and allows responders to periodically examine the casualty while waiting for definitive care. In low light scenarios such as are often found in the winter months, the light stick provides a means of illumination, signalling and marking, and is an essential piece to the remote responder and prolonged field care puzzle.
