Patients temperature is important as hypothermia can be a cause of delayed recovery from anesthesia/sedation.
Body temperature can be maintained in sedated patients with blankets.
Water recirculating blankets and warm air re-circulators ( bair hugger) are used in operating theatres.
Because there is a decreased risk of burns with warm air re-circulators ( bair hugger), these are the most common means of maintaining normothermia in the OR. These however is very costly and not necessary for a sedation practice.
The Bair Hugger Blanket is placed under a normal blanket or Surgical drapes
