Encompass Group, LLC announces Nova Next-Generation Patient Warming.

Nova warms patients without air movement, reducing infection risks associated with forced air. With no moving parts, the Nova system is silent, creating no additional noise in the OR. The Nova blanket is easy to apply and to keep on your patient. The controller unit is intuitive and simple to operate. Nova banks a patient’s heat before surgery and maintains normothermia throughout the surgical process. The Nova blanket doesn’t emit excess heat, so patients stay warm while clinicians remain cool during surgery. Nova was designed with both the caregiver and patient in mind. Upper and lower body products are available.

“Years of research and development have led us to effective patient warming with no noise, air movement or excessive heat,” says Eric Howard, Vice President and General Manager TECHStyles, Encompass Group. “When we say Nova is the next generation of patient warming systems, we’re not just blowing hot air. Nova displaces current technology and helps caregivers eliminate many of the risks and obstacles often associated with forced-air patient warming systems.

“Patient warming is a proven way to improve patient outcomes, reduce infections, limit hospital stays, improve patient comfort, and reduce the cost of healthcare. The many benefits of maintaining surgical patients’ normothermia are well known. Thirty years ago, Encompass revolutionized patient warming with the original Thermoflect® and now with Nova, we’re doing it again.”
