Laparoscopic irrigation using a prewarmed pressurized system

Academic Article


  • An automatic pressure infusion system equipped with a fluid warmer has been developed for rapid intravenous infusion of homeothermic fluids. The use of this system for irrigation during operative laparoscopy provides the surgeon with the ability to irrigate at a relatively high flow while avoiding the hypothermic effects of irrigation with cool fluids.
