San Francisco, June 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blood and fluid warmers are medical devices used to warm fluids and blood products to body temperature levels before they are administered to patients intravenously or through other routes. This is done to eliminate the risk of hypothermia in patients undergoing surgery. Hypothermia is characterized by dangerously low body temperatures. A patient’s body temperature is directly proportional to volume of the fluids given. Effective management of hypothermia lowers the risk of surgical site infections and reduces the duration of hospital stay. Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is associated with higher mortality rates, prolonged bleeding time, and increased medical costs. Blood and fluid warmers are often used in times of emergency, most commonly in operating rooms and ICUs (Intensive Care Units).

While some devices warm fluids before they are used (e.g. in warming cabinets), others warm them at the time of use i.e. in-line warming. Dry-warming methods are best-suited to eliminate the risk of waterborne contamination. Manufacturers have introduced devices with features including automatic adjustment of temperature to flow rate, audible alarm system, etc. Portable devices and those that are easy to set up are preferred owing to the convenience on offer. While fluids are infused at high rates, there is a risk of delivering air to patients. Hence some fluid warming systems have a mechanism that allows for automatic elimination of air. It is referred to as the auto-venting bubble trap.
