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
