QinFlow and first responders stand behind Ukraine
QinFlow donates dozens of Warrior blood warmers to Ukraine for field transfusions to improve patient outcomes
PLANO, Texas — QinFlow Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance portable blood and fluid warmers, announced today that it has donated dozens of blood warmers to Ukraine for field transfusions to improve patient outcomes. The Company intends to continue to donate its Warrior warmers as the conflict continues. Warmed blood delivery in patients with hemorrhagic shock has been associated with improved 30-day survival.
“QinFlow is excited to lead this mission-critical effort”, said Ariel Katz, QinFlow Inc. CEO. “The relationship between hypothermia and mortality of trauma patients is well established, especially with prolonged and often unreliable evacuation routes. We hope that this contribution will help in saving many lives. We will continue searching for creative ways to support this important cause.”
This milestone could not have been accomplished without the devotion of multiple EMS agencies, Fire Departments, and Air Medical Transport teams that supported QinFlow in this project. A partial list of these organizations includes Air Link at Regional West Medical Center (NE), Ascension St. Mary’s of Michigan FlightCare (MI), Blanco County ESD #2 (TX), Boston MedFlight (MA), County of Orange Fire and Rescue (VA), Laramie Fire Department (WY), Lifeguard Emergency and Critical Care Transport (NM), Lutheran Health (IN), Maryland Department of State Police Aviation HQ (MD), Memorial Hermann Life Flight (TX), Mercy Flight Central (NY), South Tongass Fire (AK), Tampa General Hospital Aeromed (FL), UCAN Helicopter at University of Chicago Hospital (IL), UMASS Memorial (MA), and Zion National Park EMS Services (UT), to name just a few.
Reflecting on this vital contribution, Director of Razom Health, Daniel Solchanyk stated, “Razom Health is immensely grateful for the generous donation of Warrior warmers from QinFlow Inc., as they are crucial in improving the survival rates of trauma patients in Ukraine. The donation of these blood warmers represents not just life-saving equipment, but a profound commitment to humanity. As we continue to witness the catastrophic human toll of this war, such acts of solidarity and assistance are invaluable. This partnership is also a testament to the power of cooperation and unity in the face of adversity. The contributions from various EMS and Fire agencies in supporting QinFlow’s project are a clear indication of the global community’s resolve to stand with Ukraine. Razom is proud to be part of this collective effort and remains committed to its mission of bolstering the Ukrainian healthcare system now and in the future.”
