Importance of
Maintaining Patient Normothermia

The maintenance of a normal core body temperature, normothermia, is a crucial component of patient safety.

 

Practice Guidelines for maintaining normothermia during perioperative and Postanesthetic Care recommend the use of forced-air warming devices for normalizing patient temperature and reducing shivering. Forced-air warming is associated with reduced time in recovery and improves patient comfort and satisfaction.

Core temperatures outside the normal range pose a risk in all patients undergoing surgery and have been associated with increased risk of surgical complications, including:

Increase Rate of SSIs

Increased Mortality

Increased Surgical Blood Loss

Extended Recovery Time

Advantages
Forced-Air Warming

  • The Air warming method is the most efficient way to treat hyperthermia.
     

  • Ordinary cotton blankets / circulating water blankets cannot effectively maintain the patient's body temperature.
     

  • It is recommended to maintain the body temperature of patients during operations.
     

  • The benefit far outweighs the risk and the recommendation should be performed or administered.
