CIRCULA / Medical heat management


24,3% of all nosocomial infections are caused by perioperative hypothermia.
Active heat management usually takes place late in the process. By the time the patient arrives at the hospital he is often hypothermic. A drop in body core temperature can have many serious consequences.
Wound infections are more common and the physical recovery is delayed and with undertemperature unfavourably influenced. By providing the first connected and mobile heat management system, CIRCULA can reduces risks and prevent hypothermia. Circula is the realization of a clear need.
Reduced to the essential and functional in order to optimize medical everyday life.
