Warming/Cooling Units, Patient, Circulating-Liquid

Definition : Units designed to warm or cool a patient by circulating liquid. These units consist of a central device including a cooling system (similar to a household refrigerator), a heating element, and pumps for circulating liquid; a specially designed reusable or disposable blanket with appropriate channels for liquid circulation; controls; and alarms. Patient temperature is typically monitored with a thermometer. Circulating-liquid patient warming/cooling units are used for rewarming patients on postanesthesia care units, to help prevent intraoperative hypothermia or to induce hypothermia in the operating room, and to cool feverish patients.
