Product features

A. HEPA filtration

The Mistral-Air HEPA Filter is proven as 99.99% effective in capturing what is considered to be the most difficult particle size to catch, .3 microns.1

B. Low noise level

Helps reduce disruption and increase focus during surgery.

C. Default temperature

Default blower start-up temperature of 38°C ensures warming therapy begins when the unit is powered on and helps prevent inadvertent cooling of the patient.

D. Diffusion technology

A high-volume blower combines with the soft, non-woven material of the blankets to enable quiet and even warm air delivery through diffusion technology. By eliminating jets of forced air, lofting is minimized, and warm air remains on the patient rather than in the surrounding environment.

Reflective Technology

Reflective technology can reduce heat loss by up to 80% in the perioperative environment.2 It allows for passive warming to optimize the patient warming process during transfer. The ability to both passively and actively warm ensures that patients continue to maintain heat during transfer periods when not connected to a blower unit.

Premium Blankets

The Premium Blanket portfolio can be used both actively by being plugged into the warming unit and passively without being plugged into the warming unit. Even without a warming unit connected to the blanket, the reflective layer will reflectthe patient’s radiant body heat preserving the body temperature. The radiolucent materials will not interfere with imaging requirements. Premium Blankets are X-Ray translucent, but not for use in MRI.

Premium Warming Suits

Designed for versatility and adaptability for each phase of the perioperative pathway. The Mistral-Air Warming Suit is ideal for pre-warming. It combines the functionality of a hospital gown with the benefits of a warming suit/blanket.
