Fluid Warming Cabinets
Fluid Warming Cabinets are designed to safely warm sterile intravenous (IV) fluids, surgical irrigation fluids and contrast media.
IV and irrigation fluids if administered at room temperature have been shown to reduce core body temperature. Using a fluid warming cabinet allows the fluids to be warmed for delivery at around body temperature, thus helping to prevent hypothermia associated with deep sedation and general anesthesia. Prevention of perioperative hypothermia can help reduce the incidence of a range of different complications and adverse events.
Fluid warming cabinets are typically used in conjunction with blanket warming cabinets to promote normothermia.
