Our blood / patient warming devices for the prevention of hypothermia is a recent addition to our product range. The awareness of the problem of hypothermia has grown steadily all over the world. As recent studies confirm that even mild cases of perioperative cooling of the patient represents a risk to the patient which has to be taken seriously.
Our warming devices along wih a patient moonitors that enable temperature monitoring are crucial for patient welbeing.
Cosistent warming of the patient in the operating theatre, in the recovery room, in the intensive care unit, as well as elsewhere in a hospital prevents this risk to the patient together with its concomitant nursing and financial outlay

ASTOTHERM plus 260 / 260 S The special device for the fastest flow rate
In contrast to the ASTOTHERM PLUS 220, the ASTOTHERM PLUS 260 takes thicker tubes with an external diameter of 6.8 mm but it is identical in terms of technology and potential applications. It is designed for warming blood and other fluids in dialysis, haemofiltration, urology and for rinsing solutions of all kinds.
The 130 cm actively-heated profile prevents the heated solution from cooling down on the way from the warmer to the patient.
Approx. 98 % of all transfusions and infusions are infused at flow rates of below 2,500 ml/h. In this range in particular, ASTOLINE provides active protection against cooling down. Blood and infusions thus reach the venous cannula of the patient at the perfect temperature, even in the case of small or average flow rates
Heat Protection Sleeve
Heat protection sleeve
The heat protection sleeve protects infusions from the effects of external cold and prevents heat being given off into the room. On the ASTOTHERM PLUS 220, it is available as an optional accessory - on the other models, it comes within the standard scope of supply
