Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is an unintentional drop in core body temperature below 36°C. Intraoperative hypothermia can lead to serious clinical complications such as, myocardi...
Effects of Heat and Moisture Exchanger in Combination With Air Forced Warming Blankets or Warming Intravenous Solutions on Intraoperative Hypothermia Prevention in Obese and Non Obese Patients During Intravenous Anesthesia
The aim of the present study was to evaluate if the combination of heat and moisture exchanger with air forced warming blankets or warming intravenous fluids prevents intraoperative hypoth...
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...
Maternal hypothermia is very frequent after caesarean delivery under spinal anaesthesia and should be prevented, as it induces discomfort and increases the risk of postoperative complicati...
Hypothermia is a frequent perioperative complication. When the negative effects of anesthesia on temperature are aggravated by other factors, such as glycine infusion in transurethral rese...
Hypothermia occurs in about 60% of patients under anesthesia and is generally not managed properly during short lasting surgical procedures. Hypothermia is associated with adverse clinical outcomes. T...
Perioperative hypothermia is a common and serious complication during surgery. Different warming systems are used to prevent perioperative hypothermia. However, there have been no previous meta-analys...
At present, the harm of hypothermia to the central nervous system has received a great attention from scholars. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of hypothermia on learning and memory...
Therapeutic hypothermia is the standard of clinical care for moderate neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. We investigated the independent and interactive effects of hypoxia-ischemia (HI) and tem...
Despite the indisputable need to prevent peri-operative hypothermia, some evidence in the literature questions the possible role of forced air warming systems as a risk factor for the occurrence of su...
Increase in the temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth's surface and in the troposphere, which can contribute to changes in global climate patterns.
A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
The scroll-like bony plates with curved margins on the lateral wall of the NASAL CAVITY. Turbinates, also called nasal concha, increase the surface area of nasal cavity thus providing a mechanism for rapid warming and humidification of air as it passes to the lung.
