Design and deliver products for the perioperative experience, which results in improved patient outcomes.
The concept of developing a patient warming product began in 1998 when Kent’s mother had a total hip replacement. She came out cold and it required almost 2 hours to warm her due to age, circulatory issues and the nature of the procedure. When he left the hospital in a car with heated seats, the thought came to him:
“If I can warm myself so easily and quickly sitting on a car seat, why can’t a little lady be warmed during surgery so she is comfortable and at the very least isn’t shaking and shivering?”
Since then Kent has been on a crusade: Find a solution for safely warming patients in the OR. This has lead to a number of unique and patented answers. Over the years, Kent has built an expertise for warming patients by combining new and emerging technologies.
Synergy: The idea of solving multiple problems with a single application has become a byword at Pintler Medical. The Pintler Patient Warming System addresses safe warming, pressure redistribution, better patient outcomes, high patient satisfaction scores and significant revenue savings in waste stream reduction.
