Non-sterile Roll 12" by 100ft

Product code: PO025H

Hypothermia in lab animals during anaesthesia is a serious problem, especially for small species due to the ratio of surface area to body mass.

Hypothermia can result in poor surgical outcomes including increased animal stress, prolonged recovery periods or even death. Frequently, the animal must be re-warmed before spontaneous respiration resumes.

Laboratory animals undergoing surgical procedures, CT scans or MRIs suffer heat loss due to several factors, including:

* dry anaesthetic gases
* muscle relaxants
* general anaesthetics
* cool surgical or other procedural rooms.

Lab animals may lose considerable amounts of heat while anesthetized through radiation, convection and evaporation into the environment of the procedure room. SpaceDrapes™ are designed to help reduce the severity of hypothermia in anesthetized or sick animals by reducing this heat loss.

The reflective backing of the drape reduces radiant heat loss. The covering reduces air mass thus decreasing convective heat loss (while also providing a moisture barrier and decreasing the humidity gradient).

SpaceDrapes™ can be fenestrated and can provide a sterile surface for surgical instruments during procedures. After the procedure and during transportation, the animal can be wrapped in the drapes to maintain normothermia and aid recovery.
