The Bair Hugger 505 Normothermia system is a Patient Warming product that is designed to monitor, prevent and treat unintended hypothermia in surgical patients. Actively warming patients before anesthesia induction (pre-warming) is an effective way to help prevent intra-operative hypothermia in many surgical cases. Bair Hugger therapy temperature management units have become the standard of excellence in forced-air warming. The Bair Hugger 505 provides safe, quiet and effective warming to patients around the world.
The 3M™ Bair Hugger™ system is the most trusted name in patient warming, supported by a wealth of clinical research that reflects improved surgical outcomes by maintaining normothermia before, during and after surgery. The Bair Hugger Patient warming system is used by 8 of the top 10 orthopedic facilities and research backed by thousands of clinicians and experts dedicated to patient safety.
The Bair Hugger normothermia system is a selection of patient warming products designed to monitor, prevent and treat unintended hypothermia in surgical patients. Since the launch of Bair Hugger therapy in 1987, we have worked to continuously cultivate our reputation as an industry expert and first-to-market innovator. Identifying and addressing unmet clinical needs has led to the broadest blanket portfolio in the industry and spurred the development of game-changing technologies. Now, these technologies are being integrated under one powerful brand—the 3M Bair Hugger normothermia system.
Hypothermia – a danger to your patients
Studies show that anesthetized patients can’t properly regulate their temperature. Research also shows that core body temperature drops rapidly following the induction of general anesthesia, increasing the risk for unintended hypothermia – an all-too common and costly complication associated with higher mortality rates, longer hospital stays and an increased rate of wound infection. Forced-air warming is a simple, cost-effective method to prevent unintended hypothermia and its complications. The Bair Hugger 505 provides a safe and cost effective method to keep your patients safe and warm.
