Device Development

Intraheat ® biological fluid warmer

The delivery of cold blood (it is stored ar 4°C) and other intravenous (IV) fluids to trauma patients increases the severity of hypothermia and worsens the prognosis.


FBE is developing a portable device for warming IV fluids as they are delivered to patients, to reduce the risk and severity of hypothermia associated with infusions of cold fluids.


The Intraheat biological fluid warmer is a disposable non electric portable biological fluid warmer.

Fluids which may be warmed include:

  • Whole blood
  • Red cell suspensions
  • Gelofusine
  • Saline
  • Enteral feeding solutions
