WarmingUpdate 2012: Next steps in patient warming
It is widely known that hypothermia can result from temperature drops that occur during surgical procedures, which can lead to potentially severe health consequences. Highlighting how important patient warming is, how perioperative hypothermia happens, its potential consequences and preventive measures, with an emphasis on pre-warming, Mölnlycke Health Care hosted a Warming Update webinar on 8 November 2012, to illustrate how adopting a critical but simple activity (patient warming) can result in cost savings and reduced risk of complications.
Featuring Dr Dan Sessler from the Cleveland Clinic and Dr Johan Raeder from Oslo University Hospital, renowned experts in this field, the webinar aimed to instruct participants on how and why they need to improve patient warming. In addition, Dr Karin Ganlöv presented Mölnlycke Health Care's BARRIER® EasyWarm® solution as one way to combat perioperative hypothermia.
