DESCRIPTION of the HYPOTHERMIA kit
At the letter H of the MARCH protocol it is recommended to remove the victim from the outside elements, isolate the casualty from the ground and cover him with a survival blanket(space blanket) .
The space blanket is a versatile tool that should be in your IFAK. Nevertheless, when fighting hypothermia, it will allow the victim's body to perhaps not get cold anymore but he ideal would be to gain degrees. For this we need an active device.
There are many active devices on the market that are very effective but unfortunately they are often bulky for an individual CFAK and expensive.
The HYPOTHERMIA kit from Solutions Trauma offers a space-saving and inexpensive way to fight hypothermia.
An insulated blanket coupled with Thermopads placed in the right place (armpit and groin area) and held in place with tape is a more than acceptable active option.
The estimated heating time of the thermopads is 12 hours.
This kit is a must have in your IFAK or CFAK
