°MEQU has developed an IV-blood warmer for emergency transfusions. It’s a portable fluid warmer which warms up blood from cold to body temperature within seconds.
Fast set-up time and intuitive use
The set-up time is less than 30 seconds, and the user-friendly design ensures that the °M Warmer System cannot be assembled incorrectly.
High flow rates and large warming capacity
Blood and other infusion fluids can be heated from 5°C to 37°C at flowrates up to 150 ml/min. One charged battery can heat up to 2 liters of cold fluids (5°C) or 4 liters of fluids at room temperature (21°C) to body temperature.
Low weight and compact design
The °M Warmer System has a compact design and weigh from 760 grams making it portable and ideal for prehospital use.
Adhesive for secure attachment close to the infusion site
The single-use warmer’s small size (10cm x 5cm x 2cm) allows it to be attached to the patient close to the infusion site, using its integrated adhesive pad. This secures infusion site and reduces heat loss in the tubing.
The °M Warmer System is approved for use in helicopters and airplanes.
CE certificated and has Mark of compliance.
Results Are Impressive!
Many military and emergency services across the world have either deployed or purchased the °M Warmer System for test and evaluation.
- United Kingdom Ministry of Defense – full deployment across all echelons of care in progress
- Norwegian Armed Forces – full deployment across all echelons of care
- German Bundeswehr – KSK / Special Forces
- Netherlands Armed Forces – Special Forces
- Belgian Army – Special Forces
- Armed Forces of the Czech Republic
- Estonian Army
- Austrian Army
And many more. We have personally tested MEQU with doctors and paramedics before deciding to offer to Lithuania and we are absolutely amazed how easy, simple and effective MEQU is.

“The °M Warmer makes sense for us, as it is the only battery-operated blood warming device with the flow rates and run
time that we need. Battery run-time is important for us – as is the ability to charge the device from any power source. Right now, we’re installing chargers for the °M Warmer onboard our ambulances, so that the devices can be charged and ready for us at all times and can be carried to trauma patients when needed.
Battery-operated devices also simplify the time-consuming approval rounds needed for helicopter use. If we had to draw power from the airframe itself to charge the device, a lot of extra testing and approvals would be required. The °M Warmer needs only approval to be carried onboard and basically halves the amount of approval rounds required.” “Everyone taking part on a mission carries a large pack – and every medic needs to carry two. So, it is important that the °M Warmer is small and lightweight.
In the Special Forces, a transfusion can potentially take place at any time if recommended by the medical supervisor – before or during an evacuation. And it could take place anywhere from the point of injury to a vehicle or to the point of care. So, it is necessary that the device can be used safely during transportation, and that it is quick and intuitive to use.”

“Size and weight were important for us when choosing a blood warmer. We wanted to find a reliable device that was sturdy enough to work in a hostile environment and reach the target temperature. The research papers we saw indicated that devices similar to the °M Warmer were not robust and had high failure rates. So far, we’ve tested the device in pre-hospital situations about 30 times with good feedback – it has never failed and has reached the temperature required every time.
We use the °M Warmer for code red patients who need pre- hospital blood transfusions. It’s really simple to use, right down to the red and the blue coding of the Luer-locks and it basically does exactly what it is supposed to do.”

“We chose the °M Warmer as it’s compact, easy to use, and works reliably – and we were excited that it was a Danish company offering a high-quality device and excellent service to get us started.
The fact that it’s battery powered is also important for us, as we’ve access to electricity in the ambulance but not on the ground. Blood is stored at 4-6°C in the physician-staffed EMS car, and it needs to be warmed immediately to body temperature for use in a transfusion.
I’ve used the °M Warmer personally and found it as easy to use and set up as in training, so I’m quite confident using it.”
