Why preventing hypothermia is so important

The TSC-PTM portfolio provides an all-in-one solution for keeping the patient warm during the entire perioperative pathway.

Hypothermia is a decrease in core temperature (36.5- 37.5°C under normal circumstances) because of exposure to cold.

“Unwarmed anaesthetised patients become hypothermic, typically by 1–2°C. Even mild hypothermia causes various complications.” (Prof D I Sessler MD. Perioperative thermoregulation and heat balance)

These complications may lead to a mostly unwanted longer stay of the patient in the hospital, with higher costs for the hospital as a result. The Surgical Company PTM, provides solutions to keep patients normothermic during surgery.
