        Tips and Guidelines for Buying a Hypothermia Unit

        A machine which circulates warm or cold fluid (e.g. water) through a special mattress, blanket or pads. The temperature and the flow of the fluid is electronically monitored and controlled, to keep the body temperature in a preset range. Safety foolproof measures are embedded in the system.

        Tips for Buying a Hypothermia Unit

        1. The main concern when purchasing a hypothermia (warming) unit or hyperthermia (cooling) unit should be safety.

        2. The water temperature at the machine outlet should always be between 0°C and 43°C under normal operating conditions or control settings.

        3. Hypothermia and hyperthermia units should include an automatic shutdown and audible alarm. When the temperature limits are exceeded, the alarm should be activated. Silencing it should be impossible, and the safety temperature limits should be preset and not operator tuned.

        4. It is preferred that both Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees be displayed in hypothermia and hyperthermia units. A flow indicator should also be included.

        5. These hypothermia units and hyperthermia units should also include patient temperature probe alarm, to warn about a disconnected or defective probe.

        6. Hypothermia units and hyperthermia units which are specific for joints or limbs need smaller pads, usually designed for certain anatomic features.

        7. Reusable and disposable pads come in several sizes to meet a facility's specific needs. Some sites reuse the single-use pads in order to minimize costs. Cleaning these pads with soap and water should not affect their wholeness. However, this is an important issue to address. Users of hypothermia units and hyperthermia units should check carefully for laws and regulations on the reuse of single use devices.

        8. Full body warming or cooling units for adults need a full-body pad; pediatric sizes are available as well.

        Questions for the Seller

        Before you purchase your Hypothermia Unit, we recommend you ask the seller the following questions:

        • Lo-Temp Fluid Limit?
        • Patient Temp Set?
        • Low Fluid?
        • H2O Temp Sensor?
        • Patient Temperature Probe?
        • Alarm Silence?

        Pad Sizes

        • Joint/limb?
        • Full body, adult?
        • Full body, child?
        • Full body, infant?

        Modes of Operation

        • Does it have manual mode?
        • Does it have automatic mode?
        • Is it monitor only?

        Connectors
