KEEPING PATIENTS NORMOTHERMIC IS ESSENTIAL

 

Millions of surgeries are performed every day, and maintaining the normothermic temperature of the patients is often a struggle. This is even more difficult when it comes to trauma patients. The negative impact of hypothermia can be increased complications and prolonged hospital stays. This, in combination with the extra financial burden, is the reason more and more hospitals take action to reduce accidental hypothermia.

One of the contributing factors of accidental hypothermia is the infusion of cold blood and IV fluids. In one study, the infusion of one liter of ambient temperature saline in an adult, reduced body temperature by 0.25 degrees. The infusion of normothermic blood and fluid warming can therefore help reduce accidental hypothermia.

The °M Warmer System is a revolutionary system enabling fast, easy and efficient delivery of warm blood and fluids to the patient.

 

CHALLENGES OF IN-HOSPITAL FLUID WARMERS

Current solutions do not always live up to the needs in a busy hospital environment. Some of the challenges you may experience today are:

 

  • Cumbersome and long and set-up time resulting in the risk of errors and loss of valuable time before warm fluid can be given to the patient
  • Large priming volume potentially resulting in valuable blood being wasted
  • Long warm-up time resulting in potentially large volumes of cold fluid being infused
  • Large and immobile equipment – takes up space in an already crowded area and is not easily moved around
  • Need for regular maintenance adding cost and reduces the availability
  • Difficult to clean increasing the risk of cross-contamination

UNMATCHED EASE OF USE

Setting up the °M Warmer System is extremely intuitive and takes less than 30 seconds – in fact, nothing can be assembled in the wrong way preventing any connection errors in a stressful situation.

FAST AND EXTREMELY EFFICIENT

Using a patented warming technology, the °M Warmer is able to warm infusion fluids, including blood, from cold to body temperature in less than 10 seconds. And the extremely efficient technology enables the system to deliver a high constant normothermic flow rate of up to 150ml/min.

WARMING CLOSE TO THE INFUSION SITE

The °M Warmer is equipped with a unique adhesive fixation solution for securing the warmer close to the infusion site. The proximity of the actual warming to the infusion site virtually eliminates heat loss. Also, the fixation drastically reduces the risk of compromising the IV access.

SMALL, COMPACT, AND MOBILE

The °M Warmer is the smallest and most compact warming system on the market. It takes up very little space in the crowded treatment area and it is easy to move with the patient when needed.

VIRTUALLY NO PRIMING VOLUME

The compact design of the °M Warmer means, that the priming volume is only 3.5 ml so no valuable blood is wasted.

EASY CLEANING AND NO MAINTENANCE

The ingenious design of the °M Warmer System means that the system requires no maintenance, and the design with smooth surfaces ensures easy and thorough cleaning.
