Hypothermia during surgery and in the postoperative period is associated with adverse outcomes including impaired drug metabolism, cardiac morbidity, shivering, impaired immune function, coagulopathy, and increased use of hospital resources. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that maintenance of normothermia during the perioperative period significantly reduces morbidity. Mercury Biomed has developed a patient-warming system, WarmSmart, that potentially transfers ...
Two patient warming systems will be compared with 40 patients each in a convective warming group (BairHugger, Arizant) and in a conductive warming group (HotDog, Augustine Biomedical). The patients will undergo small to medium trauma surgery and will be warmed with the randomized device - the hypothesis is, that the area under the standardized core temperature / time curve is significantly greater in the conductive warming group. Secondary outcome is the mean skin temper...
Aim of this study is to investigate the efficiency of a standard normothermia protocol and effects on postoperative Surgical Site Infection (SSI) rate.
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 feasible method of patient warming. Augustine Biomedical (Eden Prairie, MN, USA) recently introduced a new patient warming system named "HotDog" with an active polymer warming upper-body blanket and a new under-body warming mattress. The polymer-heating devices consist of an electronic regula...
The purpose of this study is to determine if local warming of surgical wounds improves healing and helps prevent infection. The investigators want to see if warming surgical incisions improves oxygen levels and healing in skin close to the incision.
Trauma is the leading cause of death in young adults, bleeding and infection are major concomitant problems. We test the hypothesis that fast, perioperative warming with an endovascular catheter versus forced air warming may improve patient outcome (primary outcome: combined perioperative morbidity, secondary outcome: bleeding, infection).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether externally warming critically ill afebrile adult septic patients will improve indices of immune function and/or clinical outcomes.
The aim of this clinical investigation is to prove that the thermal suit with forced-air warming is more effective to prevent inadvertent intraoperative hypothermia than conventional warming methods. The study group will have the thermal suit from arriving to the hospital until to the ward after surgery. In the operating theatre forced-air warming device will be connected to the trouser legs of the thermal suit and the device will be turned on during surgery. The control group ...
In this study two warming methods will be compared in knee arthroplasty surgery. Barrier EasyWarm will be used in the study group and BairHugger upper body warming blanket in the control group. Both groups will be prewarmed 30 minutes before spinal anaesthesia. In the operating room warming will be continued with the same warming method. Primary end point is core temperature after arriving to post anaesthesia care unit. Hypothesis is that Barrier EasyWarm is not inferior to Bai...
The investigators aim to investigate the effects of prewarming of patients undergoing elective orthopedic surgery on intraoperative temperature control and blood loss and postoperative patient discomfort and glucose and insulin levels.
The purpose of this study will be to assess whether forced air warming decreases the rate of surgical site infections following cesarean section.
This prospective, double-blinded, randomized, controlled study was undertaken to evaluate whether warming IV fluids (37 oC) resulted in lower incidence of hypotension, less ephedrine requirement and lower fluid consumption than use of room-temperature fluids (22 oC) in patients having cesarean section with spinal anesthesia
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 ...
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 hypothermia in obese and non obese women under target controlled infusion-total intravenous anaesthesia (TCI-TIVA) during lower abdominal surgery.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a custom-made forced-air warming mattress can prevent heat loss in patients undergoing vascular surgery better than a circulating-water mattress
Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is an unintentional drop in core body temperature below 36°C. Intraoperative hypothermia can lead to serious clinical complications such as, myocardial ischemia, coagulopathy, immunosuppression, and surgical wound infection. Hypothermia develops easily during surgeries that require irrigation fluid, such as laparoscopic surgery and transurethral resection of the prostate. Although isothermic irrigation fluid was suggested to prevent periop...
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 complications. Several modalities of active warming have been explored, with contrasting results. EnFlow® IV Fluid warming system offers effective and safe IV fluid warming without discomfort, and is very easy to use. The investigators hypothesize that this device can efficiently prevent hypothermia af...
Efficacy of Stand-alone, Non-tethered, Self-applying Warming Garment in the Preoperative, Intraoperative and Postoperative Recovery Period; Using an Integrated Chemical Heat Pack Construction, With a View to Maintaining Normothermia During the Peri-operative Period
An esophageal heat exchange tube will be inserted in anesthetized surgical patients. Each patient will have 30 minutes of cooling (circulating fluid at 7 degrees C) and 30 minutes of warming (42 degrees C) with 15-minute recovery break in between. The primary outcome will be heat transfer, determined from inflow and outflow temperatures and fluid flow rate for cooling and warming modes.
Medications used to put people to sleep during surgical procedures also cause changes in the body's ability to control its temperature. These changes can make a person's temperature drop below normal. To minimize this drop in body temperature, different types of body warming products are used during surgery. This study is designed to compare the the temperatures of people under general anesthesia after 60 minutes of warming with each product. The study hypothesis is that the...
The use of topical OTC products with a warming or cooling effect is widespread in the fields of sport, physiotherapy and in private household. The advertisement promises pain relief when suffering from musculoskeletal disorders such as muscle hardening, rheumatism or acute injuries such as sprains. In literature, there exists only little information for the efficacy and the physiological mechanisms of topical warming or cooling products. Therefore, the aim of this study is to i...
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 active warming with self-warming blanket (Easywarm®) is as effective as active warming with forced-air blanket (BairHugger®). Second the study will evaluate if one or both methods is effective in preventing perioperative hypothermia.
This study tests whether women with Vasospastic Syndrome (VS) react more intensive than controls with distal vasomotions and choroidal blood flow changes to internal cooling/warming and external cooling/warming.
Peri-operative warming is well established for general operations, but there is limited literature on the active warming of pregnant women undergoing caesarean section (CS). Specifically, there is a lack of evidence on the effect, if any, of actively warming mothers on the new-born's temperature and general wellbeing (NICE 2015). The two active warming methods recommended by NICE 2008 are the use of forced-air warming and fluid warmers. Women's temperature tends to fall below ...
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 regulated hot-air pump. The need for external warming in the morbidly obese population undergoing short laparoscopic procedures is unclear. If proven to be unnecessary, time and momentary costs could be lowered. The study will compare core-temperature dynamics during laparoscopic bariatric p...
