By working with our clinical customers, who have an issue keeping patients warm during transition and throughout their surgical pathway, we originally developed THERMARMOUR to protect and prevent patients from inadvertent hypothermia during surgery. This offers better patient comfort and improves their post-surgical outcomes.
Clinical evidence is available that shows the efficacy for THERMARMOUR in preventing hypothermia during surgery by maintaining a patient’s normothermia from consent through to recovery.
How to use THERMARMOUR:
THERMARMOUR should be given to the patient 30-45 minutes before their procedure to start the pre-warming process.
Patients should remain under the blanket until they are positioned for surgery. Exposed extremities can be wrapped with THERMARMAOUR to help prevent inadvertent perioperative hypothermia.
Use THERMARMOUR in the recovery room and during transition back to the ward or discharge for day cases.
Where has it been tested?:
THERMARMOUR has been through extensive Clinical Trials at Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals, Leeds Hospitals, Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Hospital in various disciplines.
Trial results are available on request.
Other customers say
“On the Day Surgery Unit we use the THERMARMOUR both pre and post operatively. For patients who are due to undergo surgery which will last more than 45 minutes we wrap them in a THERMARMOUR blanket pre op to assist with maintaining Normothermia, in line with Health & Social Care Act 2008 guidance for Saving Lives HII 4b (High Impact Intervention) surgical site infection prevention. These cases include all Laparoscopic work, Vascular work and Complex knee surgery. Post-operatively we use them in PACU for any patient whose temperature subsequently drops for whatever reason. They are easy to use and store plus the patient and staff feedback is very positive. “
