HotDog ABCs 2019-07-10T20:41:40+00:00

HotDog Patient Warming Delivers the ABCs:

Air-Free

  • Avoids airborne contamination from forced-air warming.

  • 11+ studies show waste heat carries contaminants to the sterile field.

Better Warming

  • Warms above and below the patient simultaneously—far more effective.

  • In multiple trails, HotDog has shown a 96.2% normothermia rate.

Cost Effective

  • Reduce per-patient warming costs by 10-50%.

  • Easy-to-implement solution delivers immediate and long-term cost savings.

“We replaced forced-air warming with the HotDog system. The advantages of eliminating forced air blowing over surgical wounds are obvious and have been proven to be of great advantage in the medical literature and in our practice.”

Dr. L, Surgeon, Toronto

HotDog  Patient Warming uses conductive-fabric for safe and efficient electric warming.

Here’s how this state-of-the-art technology works:

HotDog Multiport Controller

 

The compact HotDog Controller delivers low-voltage direct current to blankets and mattresses with precise temperature control.

HotDog Patient Warming Layers

 

It is then converted into safe heat by the patented ThermAssure® conductive fabric.

The lightweight, flexible heater fabric produces uniform and precise heat that is managed by the smart controller and an advanced sensor system.

The heater is sealed in an antimicrobial, non-porous shell. It’s 100% easily cleanable and available in a variety of warming blankets and mattresses.

Mattress Infrared Uniform Heat

HotDog heats mattresses with uniform warmth across the entire surface. Safe temperatures are 36-39°C(102.2°F).

“Since converting to the HotDog Patient Warming System, our patients arrive in PACU normothermic. They emerge from anesthesia faster and in less discomfort, and are ready for discharge sooner.”

Dr. C, Physician, Los Angeles

HotDog is the BEST Flexible Heater in the World

HotDog Patient Warming B500 Universal Blanket on Patient

Breakthrough Technology

  • 2.3x More Efficient Heat Transfer (Case Study)
  • Flexible and Lightweight
  • Radiolucent Heater

Safe Warming

  • Low Thermal Mass & Watt Density means fabric warms and cools very quickly and does not retain excess heat.
  • Uniform Heat Output
  • If a blanket is cut or punctured during use, there is absolutely no risk of shock or spark to the patient or the clinician, due to the isolated, low voltage, floating current.
  • Advanced Sensors measure temperature at patient contact points.

Designed for Easy Cleaning

  • Antimicrobial Embedded
  • RF Sealed Edges (No Crevices)
  • 30-month Lifespan

The HotDog Patient Warming System is intended to prevent or treat hypothermia in circumstances in which patients may not maintain a state of normothermia.

“I love it. When I first started here, our patients would leave the OR at 34°C. Then we got Bair Hugger®, and it went up to 35.5°C. Now, with HotDog, our patients leave the Or at 36.7°C. I’ve never before seen patients leave the OR at that temperature. I love it!”

OR Nurse Manager, North Carolina
