The TACMED™ IV Evaporative Cooling System (IVECS™) was developed to prevent IV fluids from reaching excessively hot and potentially dangerous temperatures. 

Features:

  • Maintains fluids at a safe temperature for up to 18 hours without additional cooling assistance
  • Cost-effective and re-usable
  • Can easily be converted to a pressure infuser with the addition of a standard blood pressure cuff
  • Will accommodate both 500ml and 1000ml bags
  • Provides an effective, power-free means of delivering IV fluids at a safe temperature under adverse conditions and in harsh climates


How it works:

  • Does not need to be cooled prior to inserting the IV bag
  • The only step required is to soak the pouch for approximately 15 minutes
  • The pouch cools through the method of evaporation
  • The temperature is controlled by the movement of water in the form of gas traveling over the surface area of the IV bag
  • While the circulation of air around the bag is important to allow maximum efficiency (This is not required)


According to guidelines established by the leading authority on patient care and safety in the US:

  • Fluids stored at ambient temperatures in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other desert areas around the world are not maintained at a safe temperature
  • The average daily temperatures in these areas can be in excess of 54º C (130º F)
  • Other studies indicate that the administration of fluids at temperatures exceeding 52.2º C (126º F) can damage tissue and blood cells
  • Recent reports from Iraq have shown the IVECS™ to maintain fluids at temperatures well below the established maximum
  • Tests conducted by USAMRMC (US Army Medical Research & Material Command) proved the IVECS™ is effective in extremely harsh, unrealistic conditions
  • The bag was tested over a period of 13.5 hours at a temperature of 54º C (130º F) and a maximum of 5% humidity with no wind
  • Within 2.5 hours, the control bag was already at an ambient temperature of 54º C (130º F)
  • The bag stored in the IVECS™ was only 43.3º C (110º F) and then began a very slow climb to a maximum temperature of 50º C (122º F), four degrees below the maximum recommended temperature for blood products and fluids
