During general anesthesia, temperature monitoring is critical especially in pediatrics. Recently developed 3M™ Bair Hugger™ skin temperature which is applied on temporal artery is correlated with core temperature measure by esophageal prove in several studies. Conventional skin temperature over carotid artery is also correlated with core temperature in several studies. The purpose of this study is comparing 2 methods of temperature monitoring in pediatrics. First, conventional core temperature measure by esophageal stethoscope. Second, 3M™ Bair Hugger™ applying on carotid artery.
Core temperature should be monitored under general anesthesia. Because patients are prone to hypothermia during surgery, besides, pediatric patients are more vulnerable in temperature control. Conventional core temperature is monitored at esophagus, rectum, nasopharynx. But some of them are invasive and impossible in sometimes. Recently developed 3M™ Bair Hugger™ skin temperature which is applied on temporal artery is correlated with core temperature measured by esophageal prove in several studies. Its mechanism is making zero heat flux on skin applied. But it also cannot apply in head or facial surgery. Other studies showed conventional skin temperature over carotid artery is also correlated with core temperature. The investigators hypothesized using 3M™ Bair Hugger™ on carotid artery could be alternative method measuring core temperature. The purpose of this study is comparing 2 methods of temperature monitoring in pediatrics. First, conventional core temperature measure by esophageal stethoscope. Second, 3M™ Bair Hugger™ applying on carotid artery.

This prospective observational study is designed to investigate the relationship between brain temperature, axillary temperature, rectal temperature, and bladder temperature of postoperati...
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...
Is it possible to detect infection before it is clinically apparent? Fever is one indicator of infection. However, until recently, continuous temperature monitoring has not been feasible. ...
Monitoring of intraoperative core temperature is essential for patient safety, reducing the risk of perioperative hypothermia. A recently developed measuring system, SpotOn® (3M, St. Paul...
This article explains the importance of temperature monitoring observations and highlights that the procedure is a fundamental aspect of nursing care. It discusses the physiology of temperature regula...
Early recognition of fever is paramount in reducing morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients. We performed a pilot study to determine the feasibility, safety, and tolerability of continuo...
The 30-min rule has been used to maintain a core temperature (CT) of red-blood-cell (RBC) units below 10°C during transportation. We evaluated the utility of temperature-sensitive indicators (TIs) to...
We present a novel nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) probe design focused on optimizing the temperature gradient across the sample for high temperature magic angle spinning (MAS) experiments using stan...
The existence of yawning across a diverse array of species has led many researchers to postulate its neurological significance. One hypothesis, which has garnered recent support, posits that yawns fun...
Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.
The temperature at which a substance changes from one state or conformation of matter to another.
The TEMPERATURE at the outer surface of the body.
An absence of warmth or heat or a temperature notably below an accustomed norm.
The processes of heating and cooling that an organism uses to control its temperature.
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 ...
