LAERDAL Medicool

Again, BASICS Hampshire are the first to use these on the road in the UK – and it’s a facility not even available in most hospitals. It’s quite simple technology: an insulated hat and a blanket which can cool patients down to between 32-42 degrees Centigrade so their bodies doesn’t need so much oxygen. Typically this would be a patient with heart problems, where a cooler body means the stress on the heart would be reduced.
