By minimising convective heat loss from all areas covered, which can account for up to 33% of patient heat loss during surgery, Thermawrap® is a simple draping system to prevent patient heat loss, save money and time. Made with combined polyethylene film and aluminium particulate on a polyester fleece backing, Thermawrap® lowers the risk of hypothermia and safe for all patients and procedures.
Non-conductive and radiolucent making it suitable for all electro-surgery/ diathermy and radiographic techniques.
Lightweight and flexible ensuring that it can be draped on all parts of the body in conjunction with the sterile surgical field.
Tight fitting to skin surface making Thermawrap® more effective than other warming systems when used in specific patient positioning e.g. lateral and stirrups positions.
Because Thermawrap® is inexpensive and no training is required it can be used on all patients.
Yes. Thermawrap® is non-conductive and radiolucent making it safe for use with diathermy and all x-ray equipment.
We know patients begin losing body heat pre- operatively, therefore Thermawrap® is most effective when placed before anaesthesia induction or preferably in the hospital ward.
Thermawrap® uses a simple insulation principle, thus avoiding the expense and inconvenience of using powered equipment.
