How can we get cold stored O-Low Titer blood farther forward on deployments?
Monti is a former army medic who has multiple rotations in Afghanistan and Iraq. He is now part of Delta development, which created a battery-powered blood refrigerator that can store blood between 1 and 6 degrees Celsius, which is vital for prolonged field care. The device can keep blood for up to 10 days on battery power and has a temperature log for easy record-keeping. The goal is to push blood forward to the front lines and eventually back to role three to ensure that blood is available when needed.
