Blood and fluid warming systems are widely used in clinical interventions for the prevention of non-intended hypothermia. Such systems heat fluids before and during their administration to the patient. Hypothermia can be easily prevented with blood and fluid warming systems, resulting in efficient patient management, a reduced hospital stay, and a lower risk of surgical site infections. Major complications associated with non-intended hypothermia include greater mortality rates, a long hospital stay, augmented bedding time, a higher risk of infection, and greater healthcare costs.
Blood and fluid warming systems find major usage in intensive care units, operating rooms, and emergency settings to prevent hypothermia in critical patients. Such systems comprise features such as automatic temperature flow adjustment and alarm systems. The demand for blood and fluid warming systems is supported by the growing incidence of hypothermia in clinical settings and the associated mortality.
The risk of hypothermia incidence is higher in geriatric and pediatric patients; hence, the growing birth rate and increase in life expectancy will further contribute to a greater demand for blood and fluid warming systems. Regions with cooler temperatures are the major geographic areas experiencing high demand for blood and fluid warming systems due to prevalent environmental factors. As patients under anesthesia are unable to regulate their blood temperature, the growing number of surgical procedures under anesthesia will also contribute to the growth in demand for fluid warming systems.
