We have radiant warmers on the ceiling of each bay, set to 72 Farenheit.

Subject: ambient temperature in resus rooms

Do any of you keep the ambient temperature in your trauma resus rooms warmer
than other rooms (considering 70-72F/21-22C to be the typical room temp)?
If so, how warm do you keep them?  If not, do you have the capability to
raise the room temp quickly when a trauma patient is en route?
