Patient Warmers and Accessories
Unintended hypothermia is a common and costly complication of surgery, and it is associated with higher mortality rates, longer hospital stays, and an increased rate of wound infection. Because anesthetized patients cannot regulate their body temperature, virtually every anesthetized surgical patient is at risk unintended hypothermia, regardless of age, sex, or physical condition.
Thankfully, unintended hypothermia is easily preventable. Studies show that warming patients to maintain a steady, normal core temperature helps improve outcomes by reducing the frequency of complications often associated with unintended hypothermia. Forced air warming offers a safe, simple, and cost effective method for preventing unintended hypothermia and its complications. At MFI, we offer several patient warming systems and accessories designed to effectively and unobtrusively warm anesthetized patients.
The Bair Hugger Patient Warming System offers an easy, non-invasive, continuous method to maintain ideal core temperature throughout the perioperative process. Much like a warm hug, patient warming has the added benefit of comforting patients in a time of great vulnerability. Below are two excellent patient warmers available at MFI.
Bair Hugger Model 750 Warming Unit
The 3M Bair Hugger Model 750 Warming Unit is the standard of care in forced-air warming. This heavy duty unit features three temperature sensors and increased airflow for quicker temperature response. Its advanced user interface provides finger-tip control of temperature settings for one-touch temperature selection, making this unit easy to operate by any clinician.
Bair Paws Model 875 Warming Unit
For a more compact solution, look to the 3M Bair Paws Model 875 Warming Unit. This system easily mounts to a bed rail to offer patient-adjustable warming. With this feature, patients can adjust the temperature of the air flowing through the gown to a level that feels comfortable for them. With a single Bair Paws gown, patients may be clinically pre-warmed before surgery or receive comfort warming as they await a procedure.
