Take your temperature management measures to the next level
enFlow IV fluid and blood warming system – The right temperature, in the right place, at the right time
The enFlow IV fluid and blood warming system helps maintain patients’ core body temperatures throughout the entire perioperative experience. This capability helps minimize the incidence of patient hypothermia.
The system automatically warms fluids to 40 ± 2 °C with multiple sensors to ensure fluid temperature accuracy.
The enFlow IV fluid and blood warming system helps maintain patients’ core body temperatures throughout the entire perioperative experience.
The small single-patient-use cartridge remains in-line for continous patient warming, across the care continuum
Easy to use, the system rapidly warms fluids to the temperature set point, so you do not need to wait on warming.
Preoperative warming reduces the impact of heat redistribution caused by anesthesia, leading to a more stable core temperature when your patient reaches the postanesthesia care unit (PACU)⁸.
Hypothermic patients, on average, take 40 minutes longer to recover⁵. Hypothermia can occur in up to 90% of all surgeries³. Nearly half of all surgeries are take place in the outpatient setting), it is imperative that patients recover safely and quickly to streamline the demand on surgical services.
Normothermic patients are less prone to postoperative cardiac events and leave the PACU earlier than those suffering from hypothermia¹¹ ¹².
Each liter of intravenous fluid infused into adult patients at an ambient temperature decreases the mean body temperature by approximately 0.25°C². Trauma patients often arrive in a hypothermic state and continue to lose body heat during examination by healthcare providers. Warming blood and IV fluids will help maintain normothermia, which can reduce the risks associated with a core temperature below 36°C⁹.
Hypothermia reduces resistance to surgical wound infections² ¹³ ¹⁴. Fluids or blood may continue to be delivered in the ICU where patients remain at risk from the effects of hypothermia.
Labor and delivery
Studies looking at the impact of perioperative warming on women undergoing cesarean delivery with epidural anesthesia found that maternal and fetal hypothermia were prevented, maternal shivering was reduced and umbilical vein pH was improved¹⁰.
The enFlow system is small, designed to be easy to transport along with the patient as they move from department to department throughout the hospital.
