Hypothermia treatment has shown the following physiological, biophysical, and wonderful characteristics: relieves pain; arrests swelling, reduces edema inflammation known to inhibit the healing process; slows bleeding or hemorrhage through vasoconstriction; eliminates hyperthermia, neurogenic fever; stops burn progression; protects tissue by reducing cellular metabolism, limit the spread of infection similar to a refrigeration effect; preserves by reducing cellular oxygen demand; and is a powerful neuroprotectant.
HypothermicSplint™ is an on-demand thermal dressing that can be used for Musculoskeletal injuries and Acute burn. It delivers rapid cooling deployable in 30 seconds.
U.S. Armed Forces suffer 750,000 non-combat musculoskeletal injuries each year, resulting in 25 Million duty days. 65% are medically non-deployable. 16.5 Million Warfighter days a year a Warfighter may not show up to defend the nation. This injury type is our nation's greatest threat to Readiness.
Simply by adding water and deploying provides pressure, rapid cooling, and splinting capability. Cooling benefits include: relieves pain; arrests swelling, reduces edema inflammation known to inhibit the healing process; slows bleeding or hemorrhage through vasoconstriction.
The point of injury application of cooling, seeking proper medical care, and proper rehab is shown to improve rate of return to service by 66%, saving 16.7 Million limited duty days and $2.4 Billion.
Because human tissue has a high specific heat capacity current TCCC guidelines call for covering the burn area with sterile dressings, heat-reflective blanket to prevent heat loss, provides for increased risk of secondary injuries. 911MD thermal dressings treat the primary hyperthermic injury eliminating burn progression and assisting treatment for other secondary injuries of fluid loss and infection, which result in 60% fatality. Understanding physics of burns may explain what is behind such a high mortality rate, level of deforming, and difficult outcomes.
