Cold burn

During heart surgery, it is necessary to lower the body temperature to perform the surgery.
After the surgery is completed, the body temperature is restored with a warming mat. At that time, the skin that is in contact with the mat may develop low-temperature burns. To prevent this from happening, we try to prevent the same part of the body from being exposed to the mat for a long period of time, but this can cause complications in patients with weak skin.
