These sterile mylar warming blankets are used to keep an mother warm by reducing evaporative and connective heat loss. They are used by rescue teams in the U.S., by surgery teams to keep adults from becoming too cold during surgery and by the U.S. military and perhaps most visibly by marathon runners to keep their body heat in once they've stopped running. The technology was actually developed in the 1970s by NASA to deflect heat, but it was soon discovered that the paper thin material could also retain heat as well.
