Temperature management systems, also known as thermal management systems, make use of heat transfer and thermodynamics to manage the temperature of a system. Temperature management systems aid in the regulation and maintenance of normal body temperature of patients in recovery rooms, operating theatres, intensive care units, and other areas of hospitals. These systems are critical for patients in every setting. Temperature management is a form of active treatment for a specific period of time during recovery, when the blood flow to the brain is poor.
