Thoracic, Transplant, Major Abdominal

Specialty 

Thoracic, Transplant, or other major abdominal surgery

Challenge 

High rates of hypothermia are common during large abdominal procedures. The patient is exposed and opened up at the core, leading to radiant heat loss and a declining core body temperature. The only way to offset that heat loss is to warm as much surface area as possible. Two hot-air blowers are noisy, hot, and impractical.

Why HotDog Excels

A HotDog controller can operate two blankets and a warming mattress simultaneously. That maximum surface area provides effective warming during these difficult procedures.
