“Patient Powered” Warming
Looking for an inexpensive, easy-to-use method of improving patient warming, in any situation, regardless of your current protocol? Animal Hospital Supply’s BAJA Silver Heat products are made from a special, aluminum-coated reflective nonwoven material that bounces up to 80% of your patient’s radiant heat loss back towards the animal, providing what we like to call “patient-powered” warming.
Available in three different configurations, these products can provide immediate improvement in normothermia maintenance, regardless of your current protocol, but when combined with BAJA Convective Air Blankets in surgical, critical care, or trauma applications, they provide the utmost in veterinary patient warming currently available.
Silver Heat products are reusable until the silver coating begins to wear off. Configurations:
- Leggings – with velcro closure for IV line access
- Papoose – full body warming for patients under 5 pounds
- Nest – full body warming of patients under a pound
No electricity or other power is required to implement a Silver Heat protocol, so these products also offer a “greener” option!
