After working for years in freezing operating rooms I can assuredly say it is pure misery to be cold for hours on end, performing complex duties while standing or sitting with no hope of generating enough body heat by moving about. I never was alone in my suffering, as nurses and techs wrapped themselves in blankets or wore disposable gowns in an attempt to keep comfortable.
In response, I have created a simple and practical solution; a comfortable electric/battery heated garment to provide warmth that can be worn in the operating room over scrubs, and under a scrub warm-up jacket or surgical gown. The garment is in the form of a belt to be worn around the torso. It is available in three sizes to accommodate the majority of the user population, and is composed of materials to meet AORN standards even though it is to be worn unexposed, which in itself meets AORN standards. The OPERATIONHEATJAC® helps operating room staff stay warm.
