Kanmed WarmCloud is a patient warming system with built in pressure sore prevention. This unique system ensures patients stay warm during surgery, while at the same time reducing the risk of pressure sores.
The Kanmed WarmCloud system consists of a single-use warm air mattress, a main unit and an optional remote control for operating the system. The warm air mattress, which is placed under the patient, lifts the patient creating a soft, comfortable and temperature-controlled environment.
The system quickly makes a cold, hard operating table comfortable for the patient, which helps them to relax. It also reduces the risk of pressure sores, particularly during very long procedures. As the mattress is under the patient this gives surgeons easy access to surgical sites.
Efficient patient warming and effective pressure sore prevention save hospital trusts time and money. Warming the patient shortens postoperative time in hospital, as hypothermia-induced complications are eliminated. Maintaining normothermia can help reduce surgical site infections, enhance clinical outcomes, comply with regulatory guidelines, improve patient safety and aid recovery. Approximately 12 per cent to 25 per cent of patients with a hospital acquired pressure ulcer develop them during surgical procedures. Studies reveal that one in twelve patients undergoing surgical procedures lasting more than three hours will develop postoperative pressure ulcers within four days. Pressure ulcers produce needless pain and suffering for patients. They have a negative impact on a patient’s quality of life and can sometimes last for months at a time. Central Medical Supplies (CMS) is committed to assisting healthcare professionals in keeping patents at a healthy temperature and reducing pressure sores.
