Blood warmers are frequently used in different ways in a critical care setting. Though there are different manufacturers of such units, all the devices work in the same way: the blood tubing is placed in the warmer and the circulation is warmed. The majority of time the units are used in critically ill patients in combination with a rapid infuser machine. The task of such machine is to put the blood into the patient quickly.

Each unit does things a bit differently. For example, there are such that have policies in which the blood is warmed, even in stable patients.

At present, there are a lot of health care centers that specialize in conducting operations. Some operations are short-termed and not very serious by their nature, while some operations require much time and are very serious. There are a lot of different operations: the transplantation of a heart, the transplantation of a liver, and this list can be prolonged.

As a matter of fact, no matter how serious an operation is, physicians ask relatives or close friends to donate blood to make sure they can provide all the necessary help in case it is required. The donated blood is kept in special refrigerators. In case the blood is going to be used during an operation, it is kept in special fluid warming cabinets. The reason for it is clear: blood that is going to be transported to the organism of a human being should be of the same temperature as the human body. Otherwise, the results of an operation can be unexpected.
