The Ready-Heat™ blanket is comprised of three major components, the nonwoven blanket, the heating (chemical) element and the outer translucent polybag. The medical disposable blanket is heated to approximately 40°C (104F) for 8 hours when the blanket is exposed to ambient air. It takes 15-30 minutes to reach operating temperature. The activation occurs when the translucent polybag is opened and the blanket is removed and unfolded.

The US ARMY Trauma Combat Casualty Critical Care Handbook states that as many as 66% of trauma patients arrive in emergency departments manifesting some degree of hypothermia. Over 80% of non-surviving patients have had a body temperature of less than 34 degree C. Prevention of mild to moderate hypothermia should be emphasized in military and especially combat operations.
