An Introduction to Orve+wrap®
Specially designed, developed and manufactured in-house at orvecare in the UK. Orve+wrap® pro-actively warms and maintains normothermia without the requirement of a secondary heat source. Maintaining core temperature above 36 degrees is crucial to improving patient outcome.
Suitable for emergency situations and operations where set up time is limited, the orve+wrap® is easily manipulated, tailored and cut without damaging its integrity, enabling patient operating areas to be accessed with ease. Surgical fields can also be extended without disruption to the operation. Rest instruments on orve+wrap® without the risk of damage to the blanket.
Increase productivity levels in operating theatres particularly for shorter operations due to quick and easy set up routines.

Orve+wrap® has developed into a multi-purpose emergency/survival blanket. The core materials and manufacturing process give a very high thermal retention, offering excellent weight to thermal efficiency ratio, and offer a barrier to the elements.
Each “quilt” offers a thermal property, and causes a convection heat process to raise and maintain temperature without the necessity of a secondary heat source, making it quite unique in the marketplace. The manufacturing process also allows orve+wrap® to be cut to any size without damaging its integrity.
The green reflective “outer” side of the blanket is weather proof so can be used as a makeshift shelter, a barrier to both cold and heat.
Orve+wrap® was originally designed as a single use, patient specific product for acute emergency situations or for use in operating theatres. However it is fairly hard wearing and, with reasonable handling, will offer protection for a prolonged time period.
The individual compress packing of each orve+wrap® ensures that not only does every recipient have a product ready for use, but it also aids infection control and logistical efficiencies.
Orve+wrap® is used by various Ambulance Services, British Red Cross, Mountain Rescue and by the NHS to proactively warm patients prior to elective surgery.
The pre-warming of patients prior to elective surgery can hugely decrease the risk of surgical site infections due to inadvertent hypothermia.
Each “quilt” within orve+wrap® offers a thermal property, and causes a convection heat process to raise and maintain temperature. The manufacturing process also allows orve+wrap® to be cut to any size without damaging its integrity. Once anaesthetised the “charged” quilts use convection heat process to help maintain the bodies core temperature.
The features designed into orve+wrap® make it quite unique, offering excellent weight to thermal efficiency ratio. It can also be placed in blanket warmers, to pre-warm, should any patients be at particular risk of hypothermia.
The individual compress packing of each orve+wrap® ensures that not only does every recipient have a product ready for use, but it also aids logistical efficiencies.
Orve+wrap® can be used “in the field” for an emergency situation or to pre-warm prior to an elective surgery procedure. It is also ideal for wrapping new-borns, offering that extra warmth in the first crucial hours of life, without requiring a secondary heat source.
With sizes from fully grown equine/bovine to pouches for the smallest of mammals requiring treatment, the features designed into orve+wrap® make it quite unique, offering excellent weight to thermal efficiency ratio.
Orve+wrap® can be used as an emergency blanket to offer warmth and alleviate hypothermia should the elements take a turn for the worse. It can also be used as a ground sheet when camping as it has highly efficient thermal insulation properties.
It is a multipurpose blanket that will offer the user many benefits in a range of situations.
Orve+wrap® can be used in any situation where a person is required to be warmed or kept warm and it is ideal for life-threatening situations such as a road traffic accident. The bright reflective outer also offers high visibility when stood by the roadside.
A specially designed laminate, it has excellent thermal properties that will alleviate hypothermia and help maintain normothermia.
