IN THE FIRST HOUR OF GENERAL ANESTHESIA, 70% OF PATIENTS SUFFER A LEVEL OF HYPOTHERMIA.1
Traditional irrigation warming devices are either outdated, inconsistent, or over-engineered. WEG’s easy to use, high-quality products are designed to meet your needs in the operating room.
Warming cabinets are ineffective at maintaining fluid temperature . In a 2017 review, simply moving the warm fluid from the cabinet to the open container on the sterile field caused a temperature drop from 35° C (95° F) to 33.02° C (91.44°F). During the procedure, the temperature fell again to 27.76° C (81.97°F). 2
At WEG, we are committed to four requirements for each and every product. All WEG products place safety first, are easy to use, maintain the highest quality standards and are cost effective.
We innovate by developing products with the end users, not just for them. At WEG we work with OR nurses to rethink the tools in the suite. Our products are designed to reduce the unexpected events which can challenge the best outcome.
