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.

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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
