Recently, a novel posterior heating system has been developed that provides enhanced pressure relief: the Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) PerfecTemp. Anactodal experience with this FDA-approved system suggests that the PerfecTemp warmer is effective, even in open abdominal surgery. The investigators therefore propose to test the hypothesis that intraoperative distal esophageal (core) temperatures with PerfecTemp warming are non-inferior to upper-body forced-air warming in patients undergoing open major abdominal surgery under general anesthesia.
Secondary hypotheses include that:
1. intraoperative core temperatures are superior with PerfecTemp than upper-body forced-air warming
2. final intraoperative core temperature is non-inferior with PerfecTemp than upper-body forced-air warming
3. final intraoperative core temperature is superior with PerfecTemp than upper-body forced-air warming.

Intraoperative active warming is usually performed by skin warming. There are several forced-air systems on the market; forced air warming is generally described as the most effective yet ...
Prospective randomized trial comparing effectiveness of two different forced-air warming blankets in patients undergoing lower extremity angioplasty (LEA) and endovascular abdominal aortic...
External warming is routinely used in general surgery to offset the deleterious effects of hypothermia. It entails deployment of a disposable, external heating blanket attached to a regula...
The purpose of the study is to measure patient- temperature in the perioperative period of patients undergoing plastic surgery in an ambulatory surgical unit. This study will evaluate if a...
This clinical trial studies the side effects and how well surgery and heated chemotherapy with or without non-heated chemotherapy after surgery works in treating patients with ovarian, fal...
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficiency between two thermal blanket models: the upper blanket and the underbody blanket in patient heating and hypothermia prevention during endovascula...
Hypothermia is an important complication in joint arthroplasty. Commonly, forced air warming (FAW) devices are used intraoperatively to maintain body temperature in patients undergoing surgery. Howeve...
Kissing bugs possess a highly developed thermal sense and when starved, they attempt to bite any object which temperature is close to that of a warm-blooded host. At each feeding event, these insects ...
Casein and whey proteins with and without heat treatment were obtained of whole milk and four commercial milks in Ecuador, and were hydrolyzed. Then, their capacity to inhibit the lipid peroxidation u...
In this study, both PM2.5 and size-resolved source samples were collected from a "heated kang" and an advanced stove to investigate the optical properties of brown carbon (BrC). The light-absorption c...
A genus of extremely thermophilic heterotrophic archaea, in the family THERMOCOCCACEAE, occurring in heated sea flows. They are anaerobic chemoorganotropic sulfidogens.
Habitat of hot water naturally heated by underlying geologic processes. Surface hot springs have been used for BALNEOLOGY.
A genus of strictly anaerobic ultrathermophilic archaea, in the family THERMOCOCCACEAE, occurring in heated seawaters. They exhibit heterotrophic growth at an optimum temperature of 100 degrees C.
A species of strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaea which lives in geothermally-heated marine sediments. It exhibits heterotropic growth by fermentation or sulfur respiration.
N(6)-(2-Amino-2-carboxyethyl)-L-lysine. An unusual amino acid, not a dipeptide, which has been found in proteins of cooked foods. It is formed in food that is heated or treated with alkali. Has been implicated in nephrocytomegalia in rats.
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 ...
