    What is a warmer?

    Blood/Infusion warmers are used to warm refrigerated and room-temperature fluids that are being administrated to the patient.
    Administration of cold fluids can cause the body temperature to drop.
    The patient's core body temperature decreases especially in 30 minutes from induction of anesthesia.
    The low body temperature during surgery may result in hypothermia.

    Benefit of ANIMEC warmers

    • High Safety Mechanism
    • High Durability
    • Easy Maintenance

    Applications

    • Transfusion/Infusion at middle flow rate: ANIMEC AM-301
    • Transfusion/Infusion during operations : ANIMEC AM-4
    • Transfusion/Infusion at low flow rate : ANIMEC AM-2S
    • Infusion in emergency vehicles : Flexwarmer
    • Enteral Nutrition : LIFORT
    • Veterinary care : TEMPCARE

    General Description

    The AM-301 is an electrically powered warmer which warms up refrigerated infusion/blood to near body temperature before delivering to the patient. The heating plate applies heat to flowing fluid via the tube placed in its channel. The unique design of channel offers two ways of tube setting. With single channel setting, the maximum flow rate is 15ml/min for achievable temperature. Dual channel setting is adequate when faster flow (up to 20ml/min) and/or higher warming is required. The device is available for two standard tube sizes 4mmØ and 5mmØ.
    The software controls the temperature of the heating plate and enables the fluid to be heated up to the target temperature at exit set by the user at either 36ºC or 39ºC. Alarm and other over-heat protection ensure safe use.

    Q. Is a special disposable set required?
    Answer:
    AM-4
    Yes. L-Fusion disposable set

    Others
    No. A standard infusion/transfusion tube set can be used.
    AM-301, AM-2S and FLEXWARMER: available for 4mmφ and 5mmφ.
    LIFORT and TEMPCARE: available for 5mmφ.
    Make sure to select the appropriate model or tube.
    If a thinner tube is used, the warming performance will decrease.

    Q. Why does an air bubble appear in the tube when using the warmer?
    Answer:
    Fluid bags generally contain air. Tiny bubbles join forming into larger bubbles as the fluid is warmed. The volume of air in a bag does not increase by warming.
    It's advisable to use a tube with a drip chamber or bubble trap, etc. to avoid delivering air to the patient.
    L-Fusion disposable set has a bubble trap.

    Q. Is the temperature adjustable?
    Answer:
    AM-301
    Yes. 36°C or 39°C

    Others
    No. The warming temperature is automatically controlled at pre-set temperature.

    Q. Where should be a pump connected when used together with the warmer?
    Answer:
    Join the pump before the warmer.

    Q. Is the warmer battery operated?
    Answer:
    None of the warmers are battery-powered devices.

    Q. Why does the temperature on the display disappear? (AM-4 only)
    Answer:
    When the temperature of the heating plate reaches a certain level, the power supply to the heater stops temporarily to prevent over-heating and the display shows no temperature.
    This is possibly caused by the empty bag, stopped flow or improperly setting of L-fusion set.
