For anyone who has had the dubious honor of having surgery, you know how cold it can get waiting on a hospital gurney (even being transferred to the operating table gives you a chill). Nurses do their best to provide warm blankets, but they seem to cool down too quickly. Now, there could be an alternative with the Barrier EasyWarm blanket. Once it’s opened and unfolded, it stays warm for up to 10 hours . . . plenty of time to keep your toes warm before surgery.
