Hypothermia prevention and management is a key component in the fight to prevent the onset of the lethal triad (acidosis, hypothermia, and coagulopathy). Failure to manage this condition early in the treatment process can reduce patient survivability and further complicate the treatment process. The HELIOS® System was developed to give the care provider with a hypothermia prevention and response that is ultra-compact, lightweight, modular system that allows varying levels of heat retention while still allowing patient accessibility.
