The new Bair Paws Flex™ gown from Arizant Healthcare fully covers patients and also warms them before, during and after surgery with “forced-air warming”—a warmed stream of air flowing through the garment’s inserts. It can also help hospitals easily comply with a new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) patient warming quality measure that went into effect on October 1 that could eventually result in millions more surgical patients being warmed each year. According to the company, the system features:

  • Incorporation of a patient warming gown and adjustable warming unit into one system.
  • A feel like soft flannel.
  • The ability to wrap completely around the body for full coverage.
  • Single-use so each patient has their own gown.
  • Connectiong to the system’s warming unit, which blows warm air into the gown through specialized air channels with tiny perforations.
  • The ability for the patient to adjust temperature either warmer or cooler using a handheld controller.
  • 2 warming inserts allowing for greater flexibility and easy positioning in the O.R. The ability for the same gown that prewarms patients to be used in surgery as either an upper- or lower-body blanket, depending on the procedure.
  • The ability for the gown to be connected to a more powerful Bair Hugger® warming unit in the OR, which provides clinical warmth to keep patients at a normal body temperature.
