Prototype heating block begun

A project log for IV Heater

A basic design for an IV heater to minimize risk of hypothermia.

Got the block for testing the heat transfer of the tubing made. 

I need to figure out how to transfer the heat from the heater while still having around 1 m of tubing inside it and avoid liquids. The easiest way would be to make a cool form, put the the tubing inside a container, add e.g. water and heat it up.

This adds unwanted fluids and more issues regarding daily use. E.g. evaporation,  possibility of shorts etc.

But, let's measure and see what happens
