In the context of today’s Perioperative Landscape we are navigating the healthcare compass towards combating unprecedented challenges in patient safety outcomes and the critical elements of further advancing key healthcare initiatives. Today we aim to highlight the importance of preventing complications associated with the impact of inadvertent perioperative hypothermia. We will explore on this learning journey, a deeper perspective of the science and physiology behind this phenomena as well as the impact to mitigating these potential adverse outcomes in the realm of ERAS driven initiatives and outcomes in surgical optimisation that matters the most to patients. 


Learning Objectives:


  • Define the current perspective and impact of Inadvertent Perioperative Hypothermia.
  • Highlight the science and characteristic trends behind the significance of understanding Redistribution Temperature Drop.
  • Identify the pathophysiology of associated adverse outcomes of Inadvertent Perioperative Hypothermia on hospital acquired complications.
  • Demystify the differences of direct and indirect core temperature monitoring – are we really defining the magnitude of hypothermia.
  • What are the key principles of thermal management and the strategy behind skin surface recruitment.
  • Gain further insights into the significance of Prewarming and the principles of effective heat transfer methods. 
  • Highlight the multidisciplinary approach to mitigating heat loss and undetected temperature drop.
  • Provide an overview on economics of thermal management and the why of maintaining normothermia in a ERAS approach.
