3M™ Bair Hugger™ Normothermia System is designed to be different

Effectiveness of forced-air warming systems depends on blanket design, particularly the evenness of heat distribution across the blanket.1,2
Moving air loses heat very quickly.1,2 Therefore air should be channelled efficiently to all parts of a blanket to provide even heat distribution.

  • Interconnected Air
    Channel System

    Interconnected air channels run the
    length of the blanket providing
    breven distribution
    of warm air to the patient.

  • Air Hole Perforation


    A symmetrical pattern of small
    holes extends across the entire
    surface of the blankets to maximise
    recruitment of skin surface area.


  • Pre-sealed hose port

    In selected blankets, two resealable
    hose ports enable versatile and
    convenient positioning of the
    warming unit.

  • Fluid outlets

    In selected blankets, fluid outlets
    minimise pooling of fluids on the
    urface of the blanket and cooling
    effect of excess fluids.
