The incidence of postoperative shivering is known to be inversely associated with core body temperature. However, previous studies have pointed out that the threshold of shivering could be affected by peripheral temperature or anesthetic agents. These reports pointed specific drugs, though, anesthesia techniques have since advanced considerably. This study aimed to investigate factors associated with postoperative shivering in the context of the current body warming practice.

Efficacy of preemptive analgesia versus postoperative analgesia of celecoxib on postoperative pain, patients' global assessment and hip function recovery in femoroacetabular impingement patients underwent hip arthroscopy surgery.
We aimed to investigate the efficacy of preemptive analgesia of celecoxib on postoperative pain, patients' global assessment (PGA) and hip function recovery compared to postoperative analgesia of cele...
To compare two analytical methods for the estimation of the shivering onset inflection point, segmental regression and visual inspection of data, and to assess the test-retest reliability and validity...
Targeted temperature management (TTM) is used frequently in patients with a variety of diseases, especially those who have experienced brain injury and/or cardiac arrest. Shivering is one of the main ...
Observational cohort study with propensity score matching.
To compare perioperative and postoperative outcomes related to urinary diversion (UD) between ileal conduit and cutaneous ureterostomy following open radical cystectomy (ORC).
Shivering is an early postoperative complication during the postoperative recovery period, and there is no clear consensus about the best way for its prevention. The aim of the study was t...
Assessment of whether and how phenylephrine infusion reduces postoperative shivering in spinal anaesthesia.
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. ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of IV acetaminophen for postoperative pain management after laparoscopic cholecystectomy, to determine if its use decreases the incidence o...
Shivering is an unpleasant experience after spinal anesthesia. Shivering is defined as an involuntary, repetitive activity of skeletal muscles. The mechanisms of shivering in patients unde...
Conditional probability of exposure to a treatment given observed covariates.
A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
