    The circulating air technology of the Barkey warming center II draws in air and cleans it of possible contamination through a filter. The air is then heated and circulates inside the heating cabinet.

    Hypothermia is defined as a drop in the core body temperature to +36°C or lower[1]. Causes for the drop include cold infusion solutions. Liquids that are infused at approx. +20°C cause the body core temperature to drop by 0.25°C/unit[2],[3]. The effects of hypothermia are prolonged wound healing for the patient, longer hospital stays that have a negative impact on the hospital budget, and longer and more expensive drug treatment[4].

    Therefore, warm infusion solutions at +37°C are recommended not only during surgery[5], but also in the inpatient treatment of the patient. Warm infusions trigger a feeling of well-being and contribute positively to the healing process[6].

    The Barkey warming center II represents an essential component in the optimal care of a patient in order to counteract hypothermia or to prevent it from developing in the first place. Scientific studies clearly show that heated infusion solutions make a positive contribution to preventing hypothermia. However, warm infusions should ideally be used in combination with an infusion warmer and warming blankets[7].

    The Barkey warming center II is very easy to operate. The unit must first be switched on. In the second step, two drawers can be filled with approx. 20 1-litre infusion bottles or warming blankets. The user can individually set the operating temperature between +35°C and +55°C. The device also has a soft-close automatic mechanism of the two drawers for convenient closing of the device. The four large and stable castors simplify the transport of the Barkey warming center II e.g. to another department. The safe transport is supported by the possibility of locking the two drawers by actuating a lever on the rear. This function is an additional safety feature during transport.
