The importance of normothermia

Hypothermia is a decrease in core temperature (36.5- 37.5°C under normal circumstances) because of exposure to cold.

“Unwarmed anaesthetised patients become hypothermic, typically by 1–2°C. Even mild hypothermia causes various complications.” (Prof D I Sessler MD. Perioperative thermoregulation and heat balance)

These complications may lead to a mostly unwanted longer stay of the patient in the hospital, with higher costs for the hospital as a result. TSC Life provides PTM solutions to keep patients normothermic during surgery.

Possible complications of hypothermia

 “Although few patients are faced with all potential complications, most are vulnerable to at least some.” (Prof D I Sessler MD. Perioperative thermoregulation and heat balance)

  • Heart problems
