   Technological advancements continue to play a major role in the manufacturing process for blanket and fluid warming cabinets. To increase patient satisfaction, Enthermics has taken many operative functions into consideration.

    Providing a design for a third party, allows healthcare professionals to maintain exceptional service. Logging temperature data of warming cabinets can be a timely process without having an automatic medical temperature monitoring system. Enthermics has recognized the importance of electronic data recording and patient satisfaction. Our units are now specifically designed to easily install third party temperature management systems including TempTrak. “TempTrak is primarily recognized for monitoring equipment storage temperatures. TempTrak eliminates the need for labor-intensive manual temperature monitoring and provides real-time, highly-accurate data.”step-by-step-process-on-how-to-install-third-party-systems. If you do not have a third party system, a calibrated thermocouple can be used. Allow the cabinet to stabilize its temperature and make sure the probe is about an inch away from the cavity sensor before recording temperature for the most accurate reading.

Some Healthcare facilities do not have a strict policy to record and maintain information regarding temperatures of warming cabinets, but it is important to understand manufacture instructions for the media being warmed. The plastic that insulates intravenous fluids vary, which indicates different warming instructions and limits media. It is important to recognize the warming guidelines, because warming intravenous fluids longer than the suggested time can increase health risks.
