Preoperative carbohydrate-rich beverage reduces hypothermia during general anesthesia in rats

Intraoperative hypothermia is associated with several unfavorable events; therefore, it is important to prevent the development of hypothermia. Amino acid consumption and/or infusion have been reported to prevent hypothermia. We hypothesized that preoperative carbohydrate-rich beverage (Arginaid Water™) loading can reduce intraoperative hypothermia in rats… CONTINUE READING
