Company History

Company History-Estill Medical Technologies, Inc.

The idea for the Thermal Angel was first conceived by a Garland, Texas, firefighter/paramedic in 1988, after seeing a young mother suffer and almost die from the sequelae of hypothermia following massive blood and fluid infusion. The inventor believed that disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC) could possibly have been avoided if there had been a means to administer warm IV fluids initially and continuously in a portable, battery-powered configuration. After years of work and research, the Thermal Angel prototype was exhibited in 1998. Today, the Thermal Angel is sold to hospitalsEMSflight services and military installations throughout the world.
