Unintended hypothermia in the surgical patient has been linked to numerous post-operative complications. If hypothermia is not prevented during surgery, 70% of patients may be hypothermic on admission to the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU).8 We know that perioperative hypothermia may lead to other complications. Patient Temperature Management is an important part of the care plan.
