Assessment Of Shivering With iSeismograph
This trial has been completed.
|Sponsor||University of British Columbia|

|Trial size||20 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02436174, H14-02480|
Shivering is a common side-effect of epidural anesthesia. In studies to date, the assessment of shivering has been based on a simple scale using descriptive words rather than actual measurements. We believe that we can assess shivering more scientifically by using a novel method to quantify arm movements during shivering.
