Tips for buying Patient Warmer
- Patient warmers should have audible and visual alarms to alert the caregiver of any over-temperature events with a limit setting of 44°C.
- Dual safety thermostats should be included on hypothermia warmers as well, to provide redundant over-temperature protection.
- To help prevent cross contamination during surgery, single-use disposable blankets are recommended. These are offered in several sizes. In the past, some sites were reusing them to diminish costs.
- If air temperature exceeds the convective air-warming unit's settings, the whole patient warmer should automatically shut off or shut off the heater.
- The different options, the blanket size and quantity are factors that affect the purchasing cost of these hypothermia warmer units.
- In the OR, where space is limited, small size and ease of transport of the convective air-warming unit are important, as well as storage options and readability of the control panel.
- To regulate temperatures, facilities can use a hypo/hyperthermia warmer unit, which circulates fluid – hot or cold – through a pad. This can be used instead of the forced air hyperthermia unit.
- The risks of airborne dust, bacteria, and mold blowing onto the patient or into wounds is reduced with HEPA filters.
