Bair Hugger Units donated to SKIMS-Soura
July 5, 2019

Help Poor Voluntary Trust[HPVT] dedicated Three (03) units of Patients Warmer (Bair Hugger) to SK Institute of Medical Science (SKIMS), Soura under the programme “Intersectoral collaboration with Hospitals ” on 29th December-2015 (Tuesday). Low temperature (Hypothermia) during surgery almost always happens if operation lasts for more than 60-90 minutes and complicates any surgical procedure by interfering with blood coagulation system, delays recovery from anesthesia, and produces shivering which increases oxygen consumption necessitating shifting of the patient to Intensive care unit which can lead to increased infection rates, thus increased rate of death. Bair Hugger Therapy is the use of temperature management systems that use forced-air warming to prevent and treat hypothermia in patients during surgery. The hospital was in dire need of patient warmers at surgical units. The delegation of Help Poor Voluntary Trust headed by its President Mr. Nisar Ahmad Kathjoo handed over this Equipment to Director SKIMS Dr. Showkat Ahmad Zargar in presence of other eminent professionals of SKIMS which included Dr. Ab.Qayoom Dar and Dr. Khalid Sofi. Director SKIMS welcomed this Initiative of Help Poor Voluntary Trust in extending help for general patients admitted at hospital and hoped this innovation will increase care of patients especially at surgical units of SKIMS.
