Air-Free | Better Warming | Cost Effective

Our temperature management experts will gladly design a cost effective program that’s right for you. Below are some product-acquisition options:

Monthly Warming Plan

Our most popular program, the “peace of mind” option. No risk, no long-term commitment. Get all of your warming for a low monthly rate. We ensure that the product is always updated. Plus, we offer buy-out programs so your monthly payments actually build equity in the system. 75% of your payments can be applied to a capital purchase within the first year of the plan.

Capital Purchase

Saves the most money in the long run. Blankets and mattresses must be replaced every 30 months.


Lean Healthcare

Choosing the right patient warming system is just one step in the process of providing exceptional patient care, but it can greatly impact the bottom line. HotDog is the most cost effective way to meet the challenges of the new healthcare paradigm.

Lower Operating Costs

Warm for as little as $2 per patient.

Reduce Supply Inventory and Reordering

Eliminate re-ordering, supply, and transport of disposables—saving money and time.

Increase Warming Productivity and Capacity

All patients can be warmed for no additional cost, increasing the percentage of normothermic patients and improving patient care.

Decrease Complications and Associated Costs

“Even mildly hypothermic patients could suffer an increase in adverse outcomes that can add costs of as much as $2,500–7,000 per patient.”

Decrease Waste and Energy Usage

Greener healthcare is also leaner healthcare: HotDog eliminates disposable waste and consumes 80% less energy than forced-air warming.
