What The Experts Are Saying

"APLS Transport is the best disposable litter I have seen on the market. The eight reinforced handles allow you to easily carry a patient out of harm's way. The absorbent material allows for blood and body fluids to be kept away from the patient and enables a First Responder to better estimate the patient's blood loss. APLS Transport weighs very little and fits well into packs. Another great feature is that APLS Transport can be placed on a standard NATO litter, thus protecting the litter and minimizing the risk of contamination from blood and body fluids."

"APLS Thermal Guard is an outstanding new product that has filled a gap in the Enroute Care Program. For the past five years of Operation Iraqi Freedom, nurses have had to jerry-rig supplies in order to protect our critically injured patients from hypothermia during transport. APLS Thermal Guard has provided us a purpose-made device that addresses all of the major problems that the Enroute Care Program faces. It was made with input from those of us who have 'been there, done that, got the t-shirt'. APLS Thermal Guard has met or exceeded all of our expectations."

"I recently started using APLS Thermal Guard when preparing patients for transport. I think this is an excellent and innovative product...it really makes sense. Keeping patients warm on the flights can be an issue. Having the Velcro slits up and down the sides of the patient for access is great. Keeping a patient warm, especially a post-surgical trauma patient, is vitally important to maintaining hemodynamics. Hypothermic coagulopathy can have devastating results for the patient and often times leads to death. This product saves lives and is easy to use."

"APLS is a revolutionary new asset for first responders in the MASCAL sector. The compact and rugged design, coupled with superior absorption properties, will be extremely beneficial in the field."

Penny S. Reynolds, PhD
Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine Research
Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center

"APLS Thermal Guard is the best device for the prevention of hypothermia that I have seen on the battlefield. The United States Marine Corps has tried every commercially available active or passive warming device in our En Route Care Systems and we always defaulted back to "hot pockets" (patient transportation bags made out of body bags). APLS Thermal Guard works even better! The absorbent and disposable litter accommodates any size patient, it insulates very well, it keeps the patient warm, and it wicks the blood and body fluid away from the patient. The upper access panels allow a medic to organize the patient's leads, cables, tubes and hoses for easy management. The additional access panels allow a medic to easily check on the patient's condition during flight, which is critical to patient care."
