APLS Thermal Guard is a portable and disposable absorbent litter that provides maximum thermal protection during emergency transport. APLS Thermal Guard provides an integrated system for improved patient care: the highly absorbent cellulose core wicks fluids away from the patient, the fleece-lined bag and detachable hood retain body heat, and the treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture.
Two close-able “L” shaped access points enable the patient to retain body heat while being treated by medical personnel. For added thermal protection, optional internal pockets provide a “heat zone” in four key areas when used with a mobile heat source.
APLS Thermal Guard can retain 4.5 liters of bodily fluid while safely supporting up to 450 pounds. Two pockets inside the bag hold patient documents, x-ray disks and personal effects.
