Patient Temperature Management
Even mild inadvertent hypothermia can increase post-anesthesia recovery time, blood loss, morbid cardiac outcomes, and lengthen hospital stays.1 Maintaining normothermia should include using warm irrigation fluid for surgical procedures. IntraTempTM is an effective irrigation ﬂuid warming system that provides immediate access to warm ﬂuid at a visible and controlled temperature to reduce the risk of hypothermia.
