A major cause of combat death is rapid hemorrhage. We are developing a compact portable system for rapid infusion and warming of crystalloid fluid or blood substitute for volume replacement in hemorrhagic shock. The system will be capable of infusion rates exceeding 1 literminute and will utilize unique power conversion technology for heating the infusate fluid in a much more compact and light weight package than has previously been available. The system will be designed to operate from battery or vehicle power and to function immediately without a warm up period. The main objective of Phase I was to demonstrate efficient inductive magnetic heating of an infusate with rapid response time in a compact package. A bench prototype system was designed, built, and tested. Blood warming Hemorrhagic shock Infusion SBIR RA II
