Full access to the patient is needed, and sterility is vital, so forced-air systems are discouraged. Circulating water mattresses increase vascular occlusion and, therefore, can contribute to pressure-related injuries.
Why HotDog Excels
The conductive fabric heating element in HotDog mattresses is designed to not interfere with the pressure-reduction qualities of an OR mattress—a revolutionary advancement. Nearly all other underbody warming technologies are stiff, increasing the chance of patient bed sores via vascular occlusion and heat-accelerated tissue necrosis. HotDog does not increase vascular occlusion and is controlled at temperatures safe for under the patient.
