    Temperature Management Matters

    Are you compliant with ASC-13? 3M has solutions that can help you meet the Medicare ASC-13 quality measures. Surgery Centers that do not meet the normothermia quality measure may receive a reduction in their ASC payment update.

    In their Guideline for Prevention of Unplanned Patient Hypothermia, AORN recommends implementing prewarming when active warming is indicated. Proactive normothermia management, made possible with the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ Temperature Management System (PDF, 3.91 MB), helps clinicians maintain normothermia for every surgical patient, from the second your patient enters pre-op until the moment that patient is discharged.
