HotDog® is the only patient warming system that can warm above and below the patient simultaneously, offering superior effectiveness over older technologies. This reusable, easily cleanable conductive fabric warming system eliminates costly disposables and keeps expenses flat and predictable. In six published studies, orthopedic surgeons and anesthesiologists recommend air-free warming — like HotDog — over forced-air during implant surgery for improved patient safety. One study showed periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) rates decreased by 74 percent after discontinuing forced-air warming; PJIs are now subject to Medicare penalties. Finally all patients can receive the benefits of normothermia without increasing cost, using air-free HotDog Patient Warming.
