intraoperative hypothermia is a common complication. Many complications can be developed as a result of intraoperative hypothermia including postanesthesia shivering and wound infection, Therefore the aim of the current study was to evaluate the impact of induced normothermia on occurrence of post anesthetic shivering and wound infection among patients undergoing abdominal surgeries. A convenient sample consists of 60 adult male and female patients who was undergo abdominal surgery (hernia… Expand

The Effects of Intraoperative Hypothermia on Surgical Site Infection: An Analysis of 524 Trauma Laparotomies
Just as intraoperative hypothermia is an SSI risk factor in patients undergoing elective colorectal procedures, intraoperative Hypothermia less than 35°C adversely affects SSI rates after trauma laparotomy. Expand

Prophylactic pre-induction, low-dose pethidine does not have major role in preventing postoperative shivering in patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecological surgeries. Expand
Influence of Peri-Operative Hypothermia on Surgical Site Infection in Prolonged Gastroenterological Surgery.
Severe and late-nadir hypothermia were associated with a greater incidence of SSIs and organ/space SSIs, but neither of these patterns was identified as an independent risk factor for SSIs. Expand
Effect of pre-warmed intravenous fluids on perioperative hypothermia and shivering after ambulatory surgery under monitored anesthesia care
Infusion of pre-warmed IV fluid improved the postoperative recovery profile by decreasing hypothermia and shivering in female patients undergoing short, ambulatory urological surgery under monitored anesthesia care (MAC). Expand
Inadvertent Postoperative Hypothermia at Post-Anesthesia Care Unit: Incidence, Predictors and Outcome
Evaluating the incidence, predictors and outcome of core inadvertent hypothermia on admission in the post-anesthesia care unit found IPH was associated with a longer stay in the PACU and duration of anesthesia and pain at PACU admission was considered independent predictors. Expand

Prevention of Hypothermia by Infusion of Warm Fluid During Abdominal Surgery
Infusion of warm fluid is effective in keeping patients nearly normothermic and preventing postanesthetic shivering and may provide an easy and effective method for prevention of perioperative hypothermia. Expand
Prevention of inadvertent perioperative hypothermia.
Preoperative assessment is essential to enable identification of at-risk patients, and simple precautionary measures initiated by nurses can considerably reduce the amount of heat lost, minimize the risk of associated complications and ultimately improve patients' short- and long-term recovery.

Defining intraoperative hypothermia in ventral hernia repair.
It is suggested that maintenance of perioperative normothermia may only decrease SSIs in certain at-risk populations and efforts to reduce SSI should focus on factors such as smoking cessation, weight loss, and length of surgery. Expand
