A dry heat clinical blood warmer comprising first and second heater plates, pivotally mounted relative to each other; a thin, flat, channeled sac, having an inlet and an outlet spaced from each other, is mounted between the plates, the sac contacting both plates when the plates are closed. The electrical heater elements for the plates are effectively tapered, by positioning or by power relationships, from inlet end to outlet end, in proportion to the diminishing rate of heat absorption of blood or other fluid flowing through the sac.
