BACKGROUND Although cold-induced shivering is an obvious source of postanesthetic tremor, other causes may contribute. Consistent with this theory, the authors had previously identified an abnormal clonic component of postoperative shivering and proposed that it might be nonthermoregulatory. A subsequent study, however, failed to identify spontaneous muscular activity in normothermic volunteers. These data suggested that the initial theory was erroneous or that a yet-to-be identified factor… CONTINUE READING
