VitalHEAT Manages Temperature with One Extremity

The vitalHEAT (vH2)Temperature Management System from Dynatherm Medical is designed to noninvasively prevent or treat intraoperative hypothermia through the encapsulation of only one hand.
Using the application of heat under low vacuum to open AVAs (thermo-regulatory structures) in the palm and fingers, the vH2 warms blood in the extremity then delivers this warmth directly to the core through the venous vasculature, rather than warming large body surface areas.
Reportedly convenient to apply and simple to operate, the vH2 Temperature Management System warms the patient using only a small surface area, minimizing interference with surgical drapes or the operative site.
