Surgical Drapes, Patient, Heat Loss Prevention
Definition : Patient surgical drapes are designed to provide a bacteria-proof barrier between the unsterile skin of the patient and the sterile surgical field. Heat-loss prevention drapes are also designed to keep patients warm and prevent hypothermia by reflecting the body's radiant heat and eliminating convective heat loss. These patient surgical drapes are made of nonlinting thermoplastics and aluminum; they can be reusable or disposable. Heat-loss prevention patient surgical drapes are nonconductive, not subject to mechanical or electrical failure, and are also lightweight for patient comfort. They are used in operating rooms for surgical procedures.
