Opt-Shield™

S.A.F.E. Patient-Handling System for Surgical Patients

ANNOUNCEMENT:
Recent study published in the AORN JOURNAL showed the Opt-Shield LITHOTOMY as an effective PASSIVE WARMING to supplement active warming in Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy/Hysterectomy.

HYPOTHERMIA can increase risk of infection, decrease wound healing, increase cardiac complications, and prolong recovery time…

The study showed that Opt-shield patients, compared with linen, were much warmer at the end of surgery. Foam pads for the arms and ulnar area & multiple layers of fabric insulate patient’s limbs reducing heat loss. Opt-Shield patients rapidly gain heat & maintain normothermia.
