FDA clears portable blood, IV fluid warmer from Mequ

Mequ announced today that the FDA granted 510(k) clearance to its M Warmer system, a portable blood and IV fluid warmer platform.

The Copenhagen, Denmark–based medtech company offers the warmer for both military and civilian use. It features a portable, user-friendly design that enables the warming of blood and IV fluids regardless of location. That includes point of injury, during transport and in the hospital.

Mequ originally developed the M Warmer system in collaboration with the Danish military and Technical University of Denmark. It aimed to reduce hypothermia and improve the survival and recovery rate of severely injured patients.

According to a news release, Mequ conducted numerous trials with U.S. military units and helicopter emergency medical services.
