Augustine Medical (US) has launched the Bair Hugger Model 600 PolarAir hyper/hypothermia system to cool patients during surgery. Cardiac or neurological surgery patients often have to be cooled to protect the brain. The Bair Hugger 600 achieves this by blowing cooled air over the patient during surgery through a disposable blanket. The system, which also warms patients, replaces traditional water circulating devices.
