Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Hypothermia interferes with the biotransformation of drugs, increasing the duration of action of sedatives, hypnotics, and anesthetics, delaying recovery of consciousness, and that tremors may determine the increase in oxygen consumption and production of carbon dioxide. The aim of this study was to identify the signs of hypothermia in the anesthetic recovery room. The sample consisted of 30 adult patients with body temperature at the entrance to the operating room (OR) between 36 degrees C and 37.2 degrees C, elective surgery and general anesthesia. The results showed a predominance of females, aged between 28 and 38 years, with surgery for diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy. Regarding axillary temperature of the patient off the OR, the majority 22 (73.3%) maintained between 35.1 degrees C and 35.9 degrees C, and seven (23.4%) with temperature below 35 degrees C. Most patients 24 (80.0%) remained hypothermic during the first 30 minutes spent in the anesthetic recovery room, with axillary temperature between 35.1 degrees C and 35.9 degrees C. As to the manifestations of hypothermia, the average was 1.83 events per patient, and hypoxemia in 22 (73.3%), requiring oxygen to maintain oxygen saturation, tremors in 20 (66.6%), pallor in eight (26.6%), and hypertension in five (16.6%). As for methods for treatment of hypothermia, 30 (100.0%) used a sheet and blanket policy. It was concluded that the patient develops hypothermia in the OR, staying in the anesthesia recovery room, with various manifestations, so it must be prevented in the OR to avoid complications.
