[no abstract - first paragraph of article] Maintaining a constant core body temperature of 37°C is essential for survival, through maintaining optimal organ, tissue and cellular function. Tight temperature regulation is achieved through a complex, integrated system of thermogenesis and heat loss. Different levels of hypothermia for defined periods of time can be protective. Temperature management during and after cardiac surgery, as well as after accidental hypothermia can have major effects on… CONTINUE READING
