Since 1987, the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ Normothermia System has warmed more than 300 million surgical patients.1
Identifying and addressing unmet clinical needs in temperature management with proven, effective solutions has inspired the growth of the Bair Hugger portfolio to include warming blankets, warming gowns, and an innovative, non-invasive temperature monitoring system.
The Bair Hugger normothermia system provides the widest range of best-in-class patient warming products to help clinicians keep a patient’s core body temperature within the normothermic temperature zone of 36.0° to 37.5°C2,3 and safeguard patients while improving outcomes.
The Bair Hugger temperature monitoring system is an accurate, non-invasive solution for monitoring core body temperature throughout the perioperative journey through a sensor on the patient’s forehead.
The Bair Hugger system is designed to maintain a normal core body temperature, which can help reduce or eliminate the costs linked to hypothermia-related complications.
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 and provides safe, effective warming therapy to patients across the globe.
We offer a temperature management assessment program to analyze current practices at your facility to help you implement evidence-based protocols to improve clinical outcomes.
