Over the past decades carrying and storing whole blood for EMS has been incredibly difficult; driven by challenging logistical (storage, transport) requirements and severe operating conditions. However, research indicates that blood products are a cornerstone of trauma resuscitation and has often been the solution to treating traumatic hemorrhagic shock.[1]

MaxPlus EMT Cooler

With more than 60,000 hemorrhagic deaths per year in the U.S. and about half occurring in the prehospital setting,[2] there is a grave need for an Emergency Services-focused blood cooler that can store and transport whole blood.

The MaxPlus EMT Cooler from MaxQ is designed for quick deployment and to stand up to repeated in-field and in-hospital use. All with no special handling or bench-time conditioning. They store 2 whole blood units at 1-6 C and are validated for up to 24 hours. Purposely designed for emergency medical transportation and air evac operations, the MaxPlus EMT cooler provides consistent performance in the diverse operational environmental conditions. The small, lightweight system includes easy-to-follow pack-out instructions for deployment within seconds.
