There is widespread clinical evidence of the benefits of patient warming for the prevention of inadvertent hypothermia. There are significant studies covering surgery, anaesthesia and many other clinical areas that found that the benefits of warming are clearly demonstrable, such as improved morbidity and mortality, lower infection rates, reduced blood loss and less time in recovery. All of these contribute to large cost savings.
The Alpha Patient warming system
The Alpha Patient Warming System, powered by Inditherm, combines more effective thermal transfer with simplicity of use making it superior to other methods currently available. This application of an innovative yet well-tested and established technology provides significant financial benefits with a much lower cost of ownership than other warming methods, making routine warming of all patients affordable and convenient. Warming all patients is surprisingly less expensive than being selective. NICE clinical guidelines support the use of Inditherm patient warming systems for patients undergoing operations which carry risk of inadvertent hypothermia: highlighting the potential cost savings and clinical advantages offered by the innovative Inditherm warming technology.
