Belmont Instrument Corp. officials announce that The Belmont Rapid Infuser, a medical device that is a blood and vital fluid warmer, and FDA cleared in 1999, has now been used in over 350,000 procedures worldwide. This includes civilian hospitals and military field hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Belmont Rapid Infuser warms blood and blood products to the correct physiological temperature, automatically removes air, and infuses high fluid volumes into patients during surgical procedures and trauma events. Featuring patented electromagnetic heating induction with automatic target temperature settings based on the selected infusion rate, it automatically monitors both the infusion process and its operation for optimum patient safety.
Proven in over 350,000 procedures, The Belmont Rapid Infuser is completely manufactured in-house, which has helped assure safe, high-volume operation. This includes low-cost single-use tubing sets that are color-coded, insert with a tactile feel, and fully align when the instrument door is closed. These single-use sets weigh less than a pound, and minimize medical waste.
