Hospitals in Wales are introducing hot air gowns to protect patients against the superbug Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

The single-use gowns called Bair Huggers can be filled with warm air and when worn by a patient can help tackle cross-infection, according to walesonline.co.uk.

Matrons at Brecon and Llandrindod Wells Hospitals in Wales said that the gowns keep body temperatures at a safe and constant level, and can accelerate patient recovery rate.

The portable battery-powered air pump in the gown enables patients to move freely and control temperature on their own, the staff said.

Health chiefs are planning to introduce these gowns across Wales.
