Beschrijving
This practical text offers a comprehensive guide to perioperative temperature management for anaesthetists, surgeons and nurses. The physiological basics of thermoregulation and heat exchange are covered, before the changes that occur during general and regional anaesthesia are outlined. The relevant adverse scenarios associated with perioperative hypothermia, including morbid cardiac events, impairment of coagulation, increased blood loss and surgical site infections are discussed, before the methods of measuring core temperature and the equipment and techniques to keep patients warm are described. Richly illustrated and clearly structured for quick reference, Perioperative Temperature Management is an essential daily resource to help ensure safe, effective practice.

Review
'In summary, this text provides a practical, concise guide to the prevention and management of perioperative hypothermia, especially in noncardiac surgery. It is a useful resource for anesthesiology residents, practicing anesthesiologists, perioperative nurses, and physicians who want to implement effective measures for perioperative temperature management in their hospitals, including the choice of equipment for temperature measurement and management in the perioperative areas. Through its comprehensive list of references, this book can also provide readers with targeted readings of comprehensive research papers in the respective domains of perioperative temperature management.'
