Warm Blankets Offer More Than Just Comfort

One of the most basic yet beneficial ways to offer great patient care before or after a medical or imaging procedure is to offer a warm blanket. It sounds simple but covering a patient with a heated blanket can make a huge difference to a patient, both immediate and long-term. In addition to reducing anxiety and providing comfort, maintaining a patient's core temperature has great benefits too!  

Benefits of Blanket Warming

Hypothermia is defined as any decrease in the normal body temperature of 98.6 degrees. It is one of the more common complications that is experienced by patients during or immediately following a procedure. Hypothermia can contribute to morbid cardiac events, patient discomfort, a decrease in the metabolism of drugs, coagulation difficulties, and the risk of surgical site infections. By covering patients with a warm blanket, you greatly reduce the likelihood of hypothermia and help eliminate these complications. Patients who are given a warm blanket experienced reduced intraoperative bleeding, saw faster recovery times and encountered decreased incidences of tachycardia and hypertension.

Vital to Patient Care and Anxiety

 As you can see from the lists above, giving a patient a warmed blanket isn't just a way to make them a bit warmer, but it prevents a variety of complications and helps with a faster recovery. This is especially true for both old and young patients as one of the most Important Benefits is that of reduced anxiety. Providing a patient with comfort and peace of mind is a top priority for healthcare workers and has been shown to provide significant benefits in terms of patient recovery and decreased anxiety.

Digital X-Ray Viewing for Tight Spaces

In most Chiropractic and small clinic offices floor space is a premium luxury. To keep monthly rent and lease payments affordable you have to squeeze as many services as possible into the smallest space in your office. Many times, you are forced to get double duty out of one room. Adjustment or procedure rooms get used as dressing or waiting areas while office and clerical duties are performed in kitchens and breakrooms. This is especially true when it comes to the x-ray room in many practices. Since x-rays are not performed continuously throughout the day, these rooms are typically small and quite often used for other services such as massage, adjustments, and procedures. In the days of film developing, this was further complicated by the need for a darkroom. Most x-ray rooms had a darkroom located adjacent to or down the hall from x-ray. You had to leave the patient unattended while you went to develop a series of x-rays. This also took up valuable floor space.

Clinical Chairs So Comfortable – You will want one for your own home!

Patient comfort is always important, but even more so these days, when competition between imaging and medical facilities is fierce. We have to make special considerations for our patient’s comfort when it comes to long treatment procedures like dialysis, oncology, and IV therapy centers. It’s just as important with pre & post imaging exams where patients are staged before exams and recover after exams, and with patient resting & injection chairs found in PET/CT centers. Pain Management centers, Same Day Surgery, PACU, Emergency rooms, Rehab centers, Physical Therapy, Bariatrics, and Extended Care Facilities all benefit from these comfortable chairs.
