BACKGROUND: Intraoperative hypothermia initially results from internal redistribution of heat facilitated by anesthesia-induced vasodilation. Preinduction skin-surface warming minimizes postinduction hypothermia in anesthetized volunteers. However, its efficacy might be reduced in surgical situations, because of multiple sources of heat loss. METHODS: Intraoperative core and mean skin temperatures were measured during total ...
