Hypothermia is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality within trauma patients or those stuck in cold conditions. THERMARMOUR can help by alleviating this heat loss and allow the patient to begin to return to a normothermic state without introducing an active heat source.
How to use THERMARMOUR:
Any trauma casualty will begin to feel the effects of hypothermia. THERMARMOUR Blanket or Poncho should be given to the casualty immediately. This will begin the warming process whilst they are undergoing the initial assessment process.
The casualty is to remain wrapped in the blanket or poncho during transition to the medical centre.
See Clinical Evidence for THERMARMOUR.
Situations that THERMARMOUR could be effective:
Ambulance Services, First Responders, Fire Service, Police Force, Search & Rescue Organisations, Coast Guard, RNLI

“Last Saturday I took 13 Scouts for a hike up Snowden and had to use it THERMARMOUR in anger, so to speak, for two Scouts. However, whilst on the return journey we came across a person with a serious open fracture of the knee and hypothermia. People with her were using the standard silver sheet, which didn’t appear to be working. I gave them a THERMARMOUR blanket and the casualty improved quickly.”
