Keeping it Warm – Smithworks Medical

Leave a comment

There are a few things about Smithworks Medical that most people don’t know. Owner Doug Smith spent many years as a firefighter in the Northwest United States tossing bags of IV fluids up on the defroster while responding to calls. Hearing Doug mention this brings back memories of doing the same thing here in the cold Northeastern States during the early 1990’s. EMS has come a long way since then and part of this is because Doug Smith identified a problem and figured how to solve it.

At My EMS Supply we proudly carry the entire Smithworks product line. All of the Smithworks products are manufactured in the USA by skilled craftsmen who take pride in building quality products that last for years. Everyone has seen the legendary red IV warmer and not given it much thought. The floor mount IV warmer model 12VFM4L02 is a 40 watt 12V DC unit that draws 3 amps intermittently. Once it warms your fluids to between 99′ to 101′ F. it will maintain your fluids in that narrow temperature range. The Smithworks Floor Mount IV Warmer also comes with a 3 year limited warranty. There are over 10,000 of Floor Mount IV Warmers in service around the World with a failure rate of less than 0.5%.

Smithworks Medical also manufactures the Soft Sack which is popular with flight crews and many fire departments that work in remote areas. The Soft Sack model 12VSS3L02 has a rugged Cordura outer fabric with a middle layer of Thinsulate. An inner layer of reflective Mylar further helps maintain the desired temperature. The Smithworks Soft Sack features snap in electronics which allows the Soft Sack to be remanufactured after many years of useful service. The portable bag holds 3 liters of fluid and features a 3 year warranty.

For those who desire a more rugged case there is the Smithworks Pak2-P. This has the same rugged Smithworks electronics in a Pelican 1450 case. The rugged case has been insulated to maintain the temperature and draw less current.

Introducing the Quantum ACR (Ambulance Child Restraint)

Leave a comment

My EMS Supply is proud to work with Quantum EMS Solutions a leading manufacturer of equipment designed for emergency patient care and safety. We carry the entire Quantum line of products including the very popular ACR or Ambulance Child Restraint. All of us at My EMS Supply are aware of the issues that can arise from transporting pediatric patients using equipment designed for adult size patients. For years we have carried a competing product that has been around for some time and does a good job we were looking for something even better.

The Quantum ACR is available as a kit with four sizes to accommodate patients from 4 pounds to 99 pounds. The ACR is an innovative, flexible and fully adjustable harnessing system for the safe and effective transport of infants in an ambulance and is also color coded for easy selection. The Quick release clips dock with the ACR harness, holding the patient in place to prevent potentially dangerous movement during transportation. When the patient is restrained the ACR allows for complete access from the airway to the waist to effectively perform procedures while the patient remains restrained.

Quantum has designed the ACR harness with breathable and flexible fabric which is machine washable and also meets infection control standards. ACR_m
