    When it comes to patient normothermia, degrees matter. Even a minor drop in core body temperature can result in unintended hypothermia, a surgical complication associated with an increased risk of SSIs and other costly, potentially deadly consequences.

Patient Warming with the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ Normothermia System


Own the Zone and prevent hypothermia with the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ normothermia system.

  • Perioperative temperature management can bring new value to facilities today and in the future. When used properly, patient warming and temperature monitoring systems can help the surgical care team Own the Zone— keeping a patient’s core body temperature within the normothermic temperature zone of 36.0° to 37.5°C1,2—by proactively monitoring and maintaining a patient’s core body temperature from the time a patient enters pre-op until the moment that patient is discharged.

  • Core Temperature Monitoring

    Core body temperature is a critical vital sign that should be monitored throughout the perioperative journey. Proactively monitoring temperature with a consistent, accurate, and non-invasive system is the only true way to own the normothermic temperature zone (36.0°C - 37.5°C)¹,2 and protect patients from unintended perioperative hypothermia.
