Clinical Evidence For THERMARMOUR

THERMARMOUR has been thoroughly tested by clinicians and independent experts who have confirmed its effectiveness at maintaining normothermia in a perioperative setting. Please see the full outputs from these clinical trials below and get in touch with the team if you have any questions.

Please note that the following studies were undertaken using the same product but under the previous brand name of ‘Orve-wrap.’

    Measurement of heat resistance of THERMARMOUR vs traditional blanket

    “As can be seen in tables 1-3 and figures 5-7, the Thermarmour blanket provided substantially more insulation
    than the standard blanket This is linked to a substantial lower heat loss from the body as calculated in Table
    4: for Thermarmour. With an approximated heat production of a resting person (1.8 meters stature) of around
    100 watts, in the Blue, the person will cool down, while in the Thermarmour the person will warm up.”

    Report on post-operative warming (2019)

    In summary, when evaluating against mean patient temperature at 40 and 60 minutes this study demonstrates Thermarmour’s non-inferiority to forced air warming in the post-operative phase. Alongside this, during the patients’ PACU stay, the adverse event rates were low. They were statistically not significantly different. This demonstrated the clinical utility of Thermarmour in the post-operative period. The advantages of the Thermarmour blankets are that they are quick to apply to the patient. And numerous blankets only require a single heat source to “charge” with heat.

    Temperature management in major spine surgery

    This service evaluation demonstrated that in spine surgery, the use of a Thermarmour warming blanket can achieve a high degree of compliance with the WHO standard for temperature management. The warming blankets are £13 cheaper than Forced Air Warming. This can save £8,000 per year in our institution.”

    Managing perioperative normothermia in post anaesthetic care

    By analysing the data collected we conclude that the preheated Thermarmour and Bair® Hugger perform comparably. In actively warming patients with IPH in the postoperative PACU period. In addition, cost analysis reveals a potential saving of £5.30 for each patient if the Thermarmour is adopted by the PACU department. This is a significant cost benefit for the department.

    An evaluation of Thermarmour warming blanket for temperature management in hip replacement

    Since hip surgery patients are placed lateral, the area of the body that is in contact with the heated mattress is very limited. This may have an impact on the ability to adequately warm the patient. THERMARMOUR blankets have been shown to be effective in maintaining core temperature during spine surgery at RJAH.
