The Belmont Medical buddy lite® AC is portable, battery-powered blood and fluid warmer in an easy-to-use, compact and lightweight package.
Used to help prevent hypothermia during fluid administration, the buddy lite® AC is designed for use in first responder retrievals for trauma, emergency, and emergency transport situations when warm blood or fluid is needed in life-saving efforts.
The device is approved for both ground and fixed-wing or helicopter transport and is used globally in war zones, hospitals, ambulances, air medical retrievals, and ski patrols.
The buddy lite® AC is designed to extend the warming capability of the buddy lite® when AC power is available, allowing for continuous use of the system during long transport times.
