Evaluation of blood-warming devices with the apparent thermal clearance.

Abstract

Hypothermia (less than 35 C) associated with massive transfusions is a serious clinical problem. Maintenance of normal temperatures in this setting is essential and requires the use of rapid and efficient blood-warming devices. The optimal design of such units should include a low priming volume, large heat transfer area, low pressure drop, the ability to… (More)
