The Effect of Preoperative Warming on Postoperative Hypothermia
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||preventing hypothermia, perioperative hypothermia|
|Treatments||forced air warming group, control group resistive heating|
|Sponsor||Etlik Zubeyde Hanim Womens' Health and Teaching Hospital|
|Start date||May 2013|
|End date||June 2013|
|Trial size||30 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01858727, ESM0606|
30 patients American society of anesthesiology (ASA) physical status I,II and III undergoing general anesthesia for elective transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) surgery will be included in the study. Patients will be randomized into two groups; first group(control group) and second group (forced-air warming). Resistive heating will start when patients are transferred to the operating room table; forced-air warming will start before preoperative 30 minute.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Primary purpose||supportive care|
Preoperative and postoperative measurements of skin and core temperature (centigrade ° C)
time frame: 2-3 hours
Number of patients with postoperative shivering
time frame: 2-3 hours
Male participants from 18 years up to 70 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - 18-70 age, - ASA physical status I and III patients - Undergoing general anesthesia for TUR-P surgery Exclusion Criteria: - active infectious or - febrile illness (measured temperature > 37.5 degrees Celsius)

|Description||The aim of our study is to evaluate the preoperative forced-air warming to prevent perioperative and postoperative hypothermia in patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) surgery under general anaesthesia. The investigators plan to enroll 30 patients in 2 groups. Body temperature will be measured at the tympanic membrane and skin. Shivering will be graded by visual inspection.The investigators hypothesize will decrease the forced air warming incidence of perioperative and postoperative hypothermia.|
