Disposable Forced-air Warming Blankets are for Single Patient Use Only
The reuse of a single-use forced-air warming blanket is a practice contrary to the approved protocol and can lead to very serious patient hazards.
Reuse cautions are provided in single-use forced-air warming blanket Instructions for Use, Operator’s Manuals, Service Manuals and device labels indicating the blankets are for single patient use only. They are not designed for, nor intended to be used for more than one patient. Reusing the warming blanket is a significant deviation from the intended and proper use of the product.
