  • Patent number: 10780005
    Abstract: Described herein is a system including a patient support unit having a patient environment, a heating module, a sensor module, and a control system. The control system is configured to selectively operate the system in a pre-programmed warm-up mode configured to gradually warm the patient in the patient environment according to a series of stepped skin temperature increases performed over a series of stepped time durations to achieve a goal skin temperature. Related apparatus, system, methods and/or articles are described.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10350125
    Abstract: A system includes a patient support unit having an enclosed patient environment, a heating module, a skin temperature sensor module, an environmental sensor module, and a control system. The control system is configured to selectively operate the system in a pre-programmed weaning mode configured to gradually wean the patient from the warmed patient environment series of stepped air temperature decreases performed over a series of stepped time durations achieves a goal air temperature while maintaining a goal skin temperature within a weaning abort deviation.

  • Publication number: 20140296947
    Abstract: A warming therapy device including a system for controlling the temperature within an enclosure is provided. The method comprises measuring the temperature of air at a predetermined location inside the enclosure. The method further comprises measuring the humidity inside the enclosure. In addition, the method comprises determining a correction factor to apply to the measured temperature based on the measured humidity. Also, the method includes applying a correction factor to the measured temperature to determine an corrected temperature. The method further includes adjusting the temperature of the air inside the enclosure based on the correction factor.
