Heated IV Drip Bags / Health care devices

Heated IV Drip Bags
Heated IV Drip Bags

When the indoor temperature is low, the cold injection of intravenous drips into the body makes the experience more uncomfortable and even dangerous for the elderly. The heated IV drip bag generates heat through a chemical reaction: the injection at temperature approaching the body temperature eliminates the uncomfortable feeling experienced by the patient. With the tubing fixed, the heating temperature was controlled to below 40 degrees Celsius to provide the patient with the most comfortable temperature. The heating material can be used for about three to four hours, and when it becomes inactive, a new material can be added to continue.
