Relationship Between Core-peripheral Temperature Difference and Shivering Symptom in Patients in PACU

Shivering is a physiologic response to early hypothermia in mammals. The definition of shivering is an involuntary, oscillatory muscular activity that augments metabolic heat production. ...

Perioperative Hypothermia in Patients Submitted to Laparoscopic Urological Surgery

Hypothermia is a frequent perioperative complication. Its appearance can have deleterious effects such as perioperative bleeding or surgical site infection. Once the temperature has decrea...

The Effects of Ambient Temperature and Forced-air Warming on Intraoperative Core Temperature

The purpose of this study is to determine: 1. the effect of ambient temperature on the rate of core temperature change from 1 to 3 hours after induction of anesthesia (linear phase...

Comparison Between Non-invasive Heat-flux and Invasive Core Temperature Monitoring

The body core temperature drops during general anesthesia. To maintain homeostasis, patients require warming measures. Different methods to measure body core temperature exist, which are e...

Effect of 10 Minute-prewarming on Core Body Temperature During Gynecologic Laparoscopic Surgery Under General Anesthesia

Previous research has shown beneficial effects of prewarming on preventing inadvertent perioperative hypothermia (IPH). Warming the surface of the body before the induction of anesthesia c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)

ANESTHESIA achieved by lowering either BODY TEMPERATURE (core cooling) or SKIN TEMPERATURE (external cooling).

The heat flow across a surface per unit area per unit time, divided by the negative of the rate of change of temperature with distance in a direction perpendicular to the surface. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)

Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)
