Thermoflect Heat Reflective Technology
Recommended Practice Program
This program provides a set of tools, education, and guidance to maintain perioperative normothermia in compliance with AORN Recommended Practices for the Prevention of Unplanned Perioperative Hypothermia. AORN recommendations include implementing passive thermal care measures preoperatively. According to evidence-based practices, prewarming for a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes, also known as banking heat, can minimize the impact of redistribution temperature drop [RTD].
