It is very important to keep a patient that just came out of surgery warm, as evidenced by our facebook photo today of Dante. He’s cuddled up with his blanket and one of our Bair Hugger warmers. Dante just came out of surgery about an hour and a half ago and was transfered back to the patient care technicians for monitoring. They check his temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and other parameters to make sure Dante is recovering well. Later today when he’s a little more awake, he’ll be offered a snack and some water.
