Augustine Temperature Management HotDog Patient Warming System

HotDog® is the only patient warming system that can warm above and below the patient simultaneously, offering superior effectiveness over older technologies.

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.
