Blood warmer is a specific type of fluid warmer. There are two main types of liquid heaters: one is a device (usually a heating cabinet) that heats the liquid before use; the other is a device that actively heats the liquid when in use, that is, pipe heating.
Blood warmers are used to heat blood or other fluids to minimize the risk of hypothermia
. The blood is refrigerated to preserve the cells. During the blood warmer transfusion process, it must be heated to a suitable temperature, not only to prevent hypothermia, but also to prevent hemolysis or blood cell rupture.
All patients who require significant resuscitation and resuscitation of blood products must use a liquid heater to prevent serious complications from hypothermia.
Due to its small size, it is mainly used in pet surgery, such as dogs and cats, especially dogs. In many countries, this product is used exclusively in dog surgery and has received wide acclaim.
