Hypothermia in patients is common during surgery because anesthetics disrupt normal control of body temperature and operating rooms are kept cool. As hypothermia can cause serious complications, warming surgical patients to help prevent hypothermia is now the standard-of-care. Hospitals have used Bair Hugger forced-air warming blankets on more than 180 million patients since it was introduced in 1988, and more than 80% of hospitals in the U.S. use Bair Hugger blankets today.
Bair Hugger blankets are temperature management systems that use forced-air warming to prevent hypothermia in patients during surgery. Bair Hugger warming units filter air, then force warm air through Bair Hugger disposable blankets which cover patients before, during and after surgery. Since these blankets are generally used in surgical procedures where a patient is placed under anesthesia, most patients never find out that this product was used during their surgery.
