Evaluation: Augustine Temperature Management HotDog Patient Warming Unit
October 28, 2015 | Evaluations & Guidance
The HotDog patient warming unit is a good choice for maintaining normothermia during surgical procedures. It can also be used to treat hypothermia in emergency departments, as well as to provide patient comfort and to support normothermia in preoperative care areas, postanesthesia care units (PACUs), ICUs, and labor and delivery units.
Most notable finding: The HotDog is very cost-effective compared to forced-air warming units used with disposable blankets.
