The PerfectTemp warming system is permanently placed on the operating table where it is always available and ready to fight hypothermia. A timer activates the pad in the morning before the surgery schedule begins and turns off at the end of the day automatically. A heating element sandwiched between the foam layers warms patients on contact with the pad surface. Heat is gently transferred to the patient conductively and the temperature is continuously monitored at the interface between the pad and patient's skin. In addition, the system utilizes an advanced space age foam designed for pressure reduction. It is lightweight, durable, easy to clean and radio translucent so it will not interfere with X-rays.
