Premium Warming Range
Mistral-Air premium warming products are available from Central Medical Supplies (CMS), which has extensive expertise in providing hospital Trusts with patient warming products.
The Mistral-Air Premium Warming range includes both a blanket and suit. The range features a reflective material on the non-patient side, providing both passive and active warming.
The Mistral-Air Premium Warming Blanket is an all-in-one system for keeping a patient warm during the entire perioperative procedure. The blanket’s insulating top layer is said to increase the warming capacity by at least 10%, by reducing radiant heat loss. According to CMS, the blankets can reduce heat loss by up to 80% in the perioperative environment. The Mistral-Air Premium Warming Suit can be used instead of a surgical gown. After pre-warming, the suit can be separated; enabling it to be used as an upper or lower body cover during surgery. Post-surgery, the suit can be joined back together with the velcro tabs. It is suitable for procedures that have a high hypothermia risk.
CMS offers a range of temperature management products, from a number of different companies, which continue to be available via the NHS Supply Chain Patient Temperature Management framework. The company is the sole UK distributor for The 37Company, which manufactures a range of blood and fluid warmers, along with convective warming products. Products include the Fluido AirGuard blood and fluid warmer system, which combines fluid warming with safety and speed, and Fluido Compact, a coated device for daily blood and fluid warming.
CMS has been working with Kanmed for more than 25 years and is the exclusive UK distributor for the company’s products. A Swedish company specialising in patient warming products, Kanmed produces a range of cabinets used for warming intravenous fluids, dialysis and irrigation fluids, gel positioning equipment and blankets.
Enthermics is a pioneering company in the patient warming arena and CMS has been the UK distributor of its warming equipment for over 15 years. Enthermics fluid warmers are designed to maintain precise temperatures of injection fluids, irrigation fluids and blankets. The company’s ivNow modular fluid warmers warm fluids when and where they are needed. Enthermics’ Titan blanket warmers quickly and efficiently heat blankets to precise temperatures using WarmSafe zone heating technology.
CMS also works with Biegler, which produces high performance, microprocessor-controlled devices. These devices are used for warming infusions and transfusions to prevent intraoperative and postoperative hypothermia.
