Why warm before, during or after any surgical procedure?

Degrees make a difference. The difference between a positive patient outcome and a complicated recovery can be a matter of degrees. Unintended perioperative hypothermia is a frequent, yet preventable, complication of surgery. It can increase the rate of surgical site infection (SSI),¹ extend recovery time² and length of stay,¹ and increase mortality rates.³

However, hypothermia can be easily prevented when temperature
is monitored and an active warming measure is instituted
throughout the perioperative process — starting before the induction of anaesthesia.

Maintaining normothermia can help avoid the potential
cascade of negative outcomes associated with unintended hypothermia, including4.

  • Increased risk of SSIs
  • Blood loss and transfusion requirements
  • Adverse cardiac events
  • Decreased drug metabolism
  • Shivering and thermal discomfort
