The agreement covers Augustine's Bair Hugger single-use blanket, designed to keep a patient's temperature stable during surgery, and its Ranger system used to warm blood and other fluids transfused during surgery. The Ranger is currently under review by the Japanese regulatory panel with approval expected in 2004.
