Updated: May 30, 2023

NSN: 6532016536054 is a cooling blanket for hyperthermia. It is made of Polar Skin Mini-Mesh and saturated in ArcticAqua. When exposed to an elevated body temperature, the blanket reacts to promote evaporative cooling. The blanket is available in a securely sealed, MIL-SPEC durable foil pouch that prevents air or moisture transfer.

The blanket is easy to use. Simply unfold the blanket and place it on the victim. The blanket will begin to cool the victim immediately. The blanket can be used for up to 60 seconds before it needs to be replaced or re-soaked.

The blanket is safe to use. It is made of non-toxic materials and does not contain any harmful chemicals. The blanket is also hypoallergenic and can be used by people with sensitive skin.

The blanket is effective in cooling victims of hyperthermia. In a study published in Military Medicine, the blanket was shown to reduce the body temperature of hyperthermic victims by an average of 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit within 15 minutes. The blanket was also shown to be safe and well-tolerated by the victims.

The blanket is a valuable tool for the treatment of hyperthermia. It is easy to use, safe, and effective. The blanket can be used by anyone, including first responders, medical professionals, and athletes.
