Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Maintenance of thermoregulation has been shown to reduce surgical complications and is a recognized Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) initiative. A question was raised regarding the effectiveness of cotton blankets used to warm patients in the pre-, intra- and post-operative settings; noting emergence of forced-air warming technology. The practice question evolved into a nurse-led, evidence-based practice project demonstrating significant reduction in hypothermia, infections, costs, and supplies following trial, and subsequent implementation of pre-operative forced-air warming for all surgical patients. This session will review the AORN Recommended Practices pertinent to normothermia, as well as review the results from this project.
