This five-day event will be held in New Orleans, USA and will play host to about 15,000 attendees from around the world. The congress offers an opportunity to learn about the latest science and technology in the speciality of anaesthesiology. More than 500 sessions, including special lectures, workshops and panel discussions, allow for a global network of attendees to collaborate during this anaesthesia-related educational event.
Mölnlycke Health Care will be exhibiting at ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 with the newly launched BARRIER® EasyWarm® active self-warming blanket. Perioperative hypothermia is a real problem that can have severe consequences. Patient warming, particularly prewarming, has been shown not only to help maintain patient normothermia but has also contributed to reduced surgical site infection rates, shorter recovery times1 and less patient anxiety2. BARRIER EasyWarm is clinically proven to help reduce the incidence of hypothermia during surgery3.
Join us at booth 1400 to hear more about BARRIER EasyWarm and how it can help you keep your patients warm before, during and after surgery.
