Since 1987, the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ system has extended a warm hug to more than 300 million surgical patients, helping them experience the comfort and clinical benefits of warmth.
Identifying and addressing unmet clinical needs in temperature management with proven, effective solutions has inspired the growth of the Bair Hugger portfolio to include 25 warming blanket models, four warming gown configurations and an innovative, non-invasive temperature monitoring system.
As part of 3M’s effort to Fight SSIs from Every Angle, the Bair Hugger normothermia system provides the widest range of best-in-class patient warming products to help clinicians own the zone—keeping a patient’s core body temperature within the normothermic temperature zone of 36.0° to 37.5°C¹,²— and safeguard patients while improving outcomes.
Our complete temperature management portfolio includes the most extensive array of warming blankets, warming gowns and non-invasive temperature monitoring.
The Bair Hugger system is designed to maintain a normal core body temperature, which can reduce or eliminate the costs linked to hypothermia-related complications.
Check out our ongoing efforts to educate clinicians on the benefits of maintaining normothermia, emerging industry trends, and the latest science in the field of temperature management.
Core temperatures outside the normal range pose a risk to all patients undergoing surgery. Fortunately, unintended hypothermia can be prevented through the practice of temperature management.
The 3M™ Bair Hugger™ warming system is the most used and studied method of surgical warming in the country and provides safe, effective warming therapy to patients across the globe.
Hundreds of patients and clinicians have taken time to contact us and share their experience with the Bair Hugger system. Now we'd like to hear from you. Take a moment to share your story!
