A WARMING SOLUTION PREVENTS:
- Increased Blood Loss Even mild hypothermia significantly increases blood loss by 16% and the relative risk for transfusion by 22%.
- Increased Hypothermia Did you know that up to 70% of patients in the OR experience perioperative hypothermia?
- Increased Infection Hypothermia is associated with a three fold increase in surgical site infection.
Hypothermia adds between $2,500 and $7,000 per surgical patient to hospitalization costs.
The cost of preventing intraoperative hypothermia is much less than the cost of treating the adverse outcomes that affect patients experiencing intraoperative hypothermia.

-40°C to +70°C (-40°F to +158°F) storage and transport temperature
10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F) operating environment
0 to 90% Relative Humidity, non-condensing
Temperature is controlled by regulation of heat input based on current fluid temperature.
Unit comes with a default temperature setpoint that is pre-programmed at the factory. The default setpoint is the temperature the unit controls to when powered on. Upon special request, units can be pre-programmed at the factory to a default setpoint within the AORN guideline temperature range.
The temperature control setpoint can be adjusted within a range of 70°F to 120°F during operation. Setpoint will return to the pre-programmed default temperature when unit is powered on/off.
