Level 1®

Snuggle Warm® Blankets

Convective warming is a method of maintaining normal body temperature (normothermia) and preventing hypothermia. Research has shown that unintended perioperative hypothermia can have significant effects on patient outcomes including heightened risk of surgical site infections, myocardial ischemia, prolongation of drug effects, bleeding diatheses, and longer hospital stays resulting in increased health expenditures.1, 2, 3  

As a worldwide leader in Temperature Management Solutions™, Smiths Medical has developed the Level 1® Convective Warming System to keep patients both comfortable and normothermic. This innovative system consists of Snuggle Warm® Convective Warming Blankets and the EQUATOR® Convective Warmer. Enhanced patient comfort and ease of use make the Level 1® Convective Warming System ideal for a wide a range of clinical applications.
