What is hyper-hypothermia unit?
Definition of the Hyper-Hypothermia unit.
A unit that manages body temperature until it returns to the normal levels using electronically regulated blankets and Pads. Normally it is found in every medical hospital and OT (Operation Theater).
The normal temperature of any human body is around 98.6°F (Fahrenheit), or 37°C (Celsius) is considered to be a normal and healthy body temperature. In real life, there are different situations where body temperature varies with the range of activity that humans exercise i.e, running, eating, drinking, and women’s menses can lower your body temperature. According to the study, body temperature is typically lowest at 3 a.m and its highest at 6 p.m but it found in the range of 97.8°F (36.5°C) and 99°F (37.2°C).
The hyper-hypothermia unit acts as a regulator for your body temperature which severely increases or decreased above the range of standard body temperature which can be found in an abnormal situation and it leads to medical emergencies.
Below are the common impacts of hyper-hypothermia.
- Exposure to extreme heat or cold
- Infections and Reactions
- Certain tumours
- Abnormal reaction to anaesthesia.
- Surgeries related to heart and lung
There are certain standards which a hyper-hypothermia unit should maintain that is not to increase the temperature above 105.8°F (41°C) are required medical emergencies and the temperature above 109.4°F (43°C) will usually not survive.
In today’s technologically advanced world, there are companies like Mercury Healthcare and Soma Medical Parts that provide authorised and accurate Units that can be very helpful for medical emergencies as well as other requirements to maintain humans body temperature.
