CONCLUSION: Hypothermia is least monitored complication during anesthesia and surgery results cardiac abnormalities, impaired wound healing, increased surgical site infections, shivering and delayed postoperative recovery, and coagulopathies.PMID:34840773 | PMC:PMC8605381 | DOI:10.1016/j.amsu.2021.103059

This study aimed to investigate the effects of female reproductive hormones on inadvertent intraoperative hypothermia in patients who underwent laparoscopic gynecologic surgery under general anesthesia. Materials and Methods: This retrospective study included 660 menstruating and menopausal female patients aged 19-65 years. The patients were divided into two groups according to the occurrence of inadvertent intraoperative hypothermia: non-hypothermia group (N = 472) and hypothermia group (N = 188). After propensity score matching, 312 patients (N = 156 in each group) were analyzed to investigate the association between int...

Conclusions: For patients with pelvic trauma who present with an admission acidosis, intraoperative hypothermia is an independent risk factor for postoperative blood transfusion. This information is clinically important given the modifiable nature of intraoperative patient temperature and the known complications and sequelae associated with increased transfusion rates. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

The aim of this study was to determine the magnitude and associated factors of intraoperative shivering after cesarean section delivery.METHODOLOGY: An institution-based cross-sectional study was conducted. A total of 326 willing patients were included in the study after obtaining ethical cons...

ConclusionsDuring the preweanling period, a single injection of a selective 5-HT1A or 5-HT1B agonist is capable of producing drug-induced plasticity. A pretreatment administration of 8-OH-DPAT causes both tolerance (hypothermia) and behavioral sensitization (locomotor activity) in preweanling rats, whereas repeated CP-94253 treatment results in tolerance.
