Local or general anesthesia causes a consequent decrease in the central temperature of the patient that can lead to moderate or severe hypothermia depending on the case.

This hypothermia is the result of 3 factors:
- A cold environment to which the patient is subjected
- An inhibition of thermoregulation by anesthetic agents
- A negative thermal balance (losses> production).

In order to limit the risk of hypothermia, it is essential to control the temperature of the patient.

Our attached newsletter offers several soluitions to set up.
