Even mild inadvertent hypothermia can increase post-anesthesia recovery time, blood loss, morbid cardiac outcomes, and lengthen hospital stays.1 Maintaining normothermia should include using warm irrigation fluid for surgical procedures. IntraTempTM is an effective irrigation ﬂuid warming system that provides immediate access to warm ﬂuid at a visible and controlled temperature to reduce the risk of hypothermia.

The IntraTempTM Fluid Warming System from Ecolab provides immediate access to warm irrigation fluid at a visible and controlled temperature to reduce the risk of hypothermia when used as part of a comprehensive normothermia protocol.
During procedures requiring surgical slush, ORS Hush-SlushTM Systems from Ecolab deliver velvet-soft slush which saves valuable nursing time. The proprietary Auto-Stir™ technology in Hush-SlushTM Systems automatically stirs the solution while cooling and eliminates concerns with conventional slush that may have sharp edges which can cause trauma to delicate tissues.
