Convective warming blankets improve peroperative heat preservation in congenital heart surgery.

Abstract

Peroperative heat preservation, following hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in children, has always been a challenge to the anaesthetist. We studied the efficiency of a convective heating system on peroperative heat preservation in 50 children undergoing congenital heart surgery.
