Abstract

Inadverent intraoperative hypothermia is the most common perioperative complication that can affect the postoperative course. The development of hypothermia has been associated with higher incidence rates of infectious complications, increased requirements for blood preparations and clotting disturbances. Routine perioperative management does not involve the use of active methods for the prevention of hypothermia. The aim of the present paper is to describe the factors likely to increase the risk of hypothermia and the methods of its prevention.
