Medical warming cabinets are useful in multiple ways depending on needs of your medical facility. A few of their functions include:

  • -Blanket warmer. This is the most apparent use of blanket warming cabinets. Warm blankets not only help patients remain comfortable while at your facility, but also helps prevent pre-and postoperative hypothermia. Warm blankets can even help decrease recuperation time. In some instances, general anesthesia may cause patients to shiver and their body temperature to fall. Without a doubt, this makes warm blankets essential for most any procedure involving anesthesia.
  • -Irrigation solutions. The purpose of irrigating solutions is to sustain the integrity of intraocular tissue. By keeping these solutions sufficiently warm, similar to blankets, it helps prevent pre-operation hypothermia. Plus there’s the extra benefit of providing an optimal healing environment and maintaining comfort during a procedure.

Intravenous fluids. Intravenous therapy can be utilized for delivering medications for blood transfusions or fluid replacement. Assuring these fluids stay warm help the patient maintain an adequate temperature and feels comfortable during procedures.
