Therapeutic hypothermic induction requires near-freezing saline solution, which is no longer an issue, thanks to Engel freezers.
The use of “induced hypothermia” has shown great promise in the emergency treatment of cardiac arrest victims.
Engel offers the most extensive line of portable refrigeration units for the emergency medical market that can fit in any emergency vehicle, from a fully equipped ambulance to the chief’s cruiser. This fridge-freezer is FDA registered and will maintain any temperature from 0° to 113°, despite changes in ambient temperature.
The Engel Fridge-Freezer is also ideal for the storage and transport of vaccines, medications and IV saline that require controlled refrigeration. Vaccines like varicella and the swine flu vaccine must be maintained at specific temperatures and are commonly stored and transported by health department nurses in Engel freezers. Portable Engel freezers allow medical professionals to maintain the cold chain from office to car to outreach clinic and back.
MR040 offers the same performance as the Engel MD14F, but with a 40-quart capacity. The MR040’s larger space makes this an ideal cooler for larger operations, rehab and more chilled saline for busier services.
All Engel fridge-freezers feature the Engel Swing Motor Compressor. Highly efficient, it typically draws around 1 to 2 Amps per hour (check the specs below), about 40% less than a traditional compressor.
Engel fridge-freezers run on battery power (12V/24V DC) or 110V AC, so whether you're on the road, on the water or safe at home, you can use your Engel to make life a little easier.
