Abstract

Disclosed is a thermal blanket arrangement (10), particularly for a patient during surgery, comprising at least one blanket (11) which is provided with a heating element. Said blanket (11) is covered with a removable protective envelope (15) that is made of a liquid-tight material. The inside of the protective envelope (15) is provided with a liquid-tight film layer (15') while the outside thereof is advantageously provided with a paper layer or fabric layer (15') that is connected to said film layer (15') such that the blanket which is provided with a heating element is prevented from being soiled.

Description

Thermal blankets assembly for use in operations in

Hospitals or the like

The invention concerns a heat blanket assembly for use in operations in hospitals or the like, with a zudeckbaren a patient heat storage ceiling.

In operations in hospitals, hospitals, medical practices or the like, it is necessary that at operating person (or animal) is covered during the procedure, at least for not operating parts of the body with a heat blanket, so that this part of the body is supplied with a sufficient supply of heat. To date, the reusable warmer blankets were washed in each case after an operation and, optionally, provided ready for use again by a costly chemical cleaning.

Of the present invention, the object was based on contrast is to provide a thermal blanket of the aforementioned type wherein in simple and inexpensive manner, a contamination of a conventional heat storage ceiling largely prevented and this blanket can be used over a longer period of time again.

The object is inventively achieved in that the ceiling is covered with a removable protective cover having a liquid-impermeable material in order to prevent soiling of the ceiling.

With this novel wet-strength protective sleeve contamination of the heat-retaining blanket during surgery can be safely prevented, so that the ceiling for a variety of operations - can be used - without subjecting them to a costly cleaning.

In a very advantageous embodiment, the protective cover is on the inside with a liquid impermeable film layer and the outer side provided with a film layer associated with this paper or a fabric layer. So that this case can be manufactured very cost effective and therefore it is suitable for single use only.

Very advantageous is the paper layer of an absorbent material similar to a filter paper, so that completely absorbed with it the overall on the protective sleeve long liquids or liquid mixtures, and retained on the ceiling in front of a further flow.

Embodiments of the invention and further advantages thereof are explained in detail below with reference to the drawing. It shows:

1 is a plan view of a heat blanket shown schematically with an inventive protective cover, Figure 2 is a side view of the protective cover shown in section and the ceiling is shown in view according to Figure 1, and Figure 3 is a plan view of a variant of a schematically illustrated

Thermal blanket with a novel protective cover.

Figures 1 and 2 show a heat blanket assembly 10 with a heating element shown in detail at least one non-containing ceiling 11. These thermal blankets assembly 10 is used in particular for the covering of a patient not shown in more detail in an operation. With it, the patient's body parts are covered to be protected and in these so hypothermia is prevented. The thermal blanket can for example have a size of 1900 mm length and a width 500 mm. From the ceiling 11 is an electrical connecting cable 11 is still further indicated 'which arrival to a mains supply can be closed.

According to the invention the cover 11 is covered with a removable protective cover 15 made of a liquid impermeable material in order to prevent soiling of the ceiling. 11

This protective cover 15 is inside with a liquid impervious film layer 15 'and on the outside with a with this film layer 15' is provided connected to a paper or tissue layer 15 '. The paper layer 15 'is made of an absorbent material similar to a filter paper, so that it is absorbed by the reaching of the protective sheath 15 liquid or liquid mixture. For the paper layer 15 'is a pure cellulose, however, for the liquid impervious film layer 15 "poly-ethylene is advantageously used. This combination of materials results in an easy and inexpensive to produce dry-process case.

Conveniently, there is a protective sheath 15 made up of two overlapping casing sheets 16, 17, in each of which the outside, the paper layer 15 'and the inside of the film layer 15 is located. "On Training they are senumfang fixed by a Schliessnaht 13 to each other, and this by sewing or a plastic welding or the like may be effected.

At one side edge of an opening 19 is provided through which the cover 11 can be put into the protective sheath 15 or pushed. This opening 19 is mounted on the longitudinal side of the protective sheath 15 °. In the end region of the longitudinal sides, the two casing sheets 16, 17 joined by seams 13 'with each other, so that the cover 11 can not fall out easily from the package 15th

The heating blanket 10 is disposed in an insert in an operation such that the respective opening 19 in the protective sleeve 15 is remote to the executing of the surgical site.

Figure 3 shows another variant of a heat blanket assembly 20 as that is configured according to Figure 1 at the same. There are therefore explained below only the differences. This thermal blanket 20 is particularly suitable for covering the thigh and part of the abdomen to be operating person.

According to the invention the ceiling 21 are in turn coated with a removable protective cover 25, which is provided with a liquid-impermeable material in order to prevent soiling of the ceiling 21st

These thermal blankets assembly 20 is in this case divided into two halves which are connected together at one end of the long side by a connecting piece 28, so that a pair of pants shape results in which one half can be placed on a thigh. The Schliessnähte 23 are mounted U-shaped at the circumference of the respective half, so that a corresponding opening 29 is present for the insertion of the ceiling 21 on the side of the connecting piece 28, which also extends through the electrical cable 1. 1

The invention is sufficiently described with the embodiments discussed above. However, they Hesse be represented in other versions. Thus, the protective sleeve can be customized with its dimensions of the ceiling made in various large scale. These blankets can also be heated otherwise than electrically, for example by means of hot air, hot water or another heat source.

The inventive protective cover can of course be used for the various common types of blankets, such as an upper body blanket, a lower body blanket, a full body blanket or a baby blanket with a respective heating.
