Human reaction to cold stress and hypothermia involves shivering. Another form of overt shaking, postoperative shivering, has been attributed as a thermoregulatory response to postoperative hypothermia. Analysis of the normal human shivering pattern showed a synchronized, slow amplitude modulation (six to eight cycles/min) over all muscles sampled. In(More)
The authors tested the hypothesis that during epidural anesthesia: 1) shivering-like tremor is primarily normal thermoregulatory shivering; 2) hypothermia does not produce a subjective sensation of cold; and 3) injectate temperature does not influence tremor intensity. An epidural catheter was inserted into ten healthy, nonpregnant volunteers randomly(More)
