Warming Systems

Medline PerfecTemp
PerfecTemp is an O.R. table pad that incorporates both pressure-reducing high-tech material to reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers and a warming system to combat hypothermia. PerfecTemp is the only warming system available that monitors the temperature delivered to the patient at the point of contact between the pad and the patient’s skin, improving patient safety by ensuring that the patient’s temperature is constantly monitored and maintained to the desired level to sustain normal body temperature. PerfecTemp is constructed with materials specifically designed to reduce the risk of pressure ulcer formation, which can cause complications.

HotDog Multi-Function2HotDog Conductive Warming System
Augustine Temperature Management’s line of air-free patient warming includes the hotDog Multi-Function controller, Torso Blanket and underbody Warming Mattresses. The new controllers can power multiple conductive fabric blankets and a mattress simultaneously, maximizing patient access while achieving SCIP-Inf-10 and PQRI/PQRS goals for patient warming. hotDog warming uses patented ThermAssurea conductive fabric technology, originally designed for radar absorption by the aerospace industry.

WarmAir Convective Warming System
The CSZ WarmAir Convective Warming System uses a patented lower velocity blower that supplies gently moving, clean air. All air is filtered before being distributed to the air blanket to help prevent airborne bacterial contamination in critical areas. The warmed air is then filtered again as it leaves the warming blanket. The WarmAir warming unit weighs 13.5 pounds (6.1kg) and stands 13.5 inches high. The WarmAir unit attaches to CSZ universal stands, operating room tables, stretchers, bed ends, side rails or IV poles.Warming-System1
