Warming up someone who is in a critical situation is vital to prevent hypothermia. Patient warming blankets and ponchos are made from multi-layered thermal insulating material. Orvewrap warming blankets are used in many scenarios including being used by the emergency services, the military, search & rescue teams and adventurous walking, mountaineering groups.
Simply take the warming blanket out of the packet and wrap it around the injured person or patient. There’s no need for electricity with this method of warming. The body’s residual heat accumulates inside the many layers of the patient warming blankets to create a warm environment. This heats up the body to a normal temperature, preventing hypothermia.
Preventing hypothermia while you wait to either be rescued or to be taken to hospital can be a matter of life or death.
