Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: Comparison of two intraoperative warming systems used to maintain normothermia in the pediatric patient undergoing surgical intervention: forced air warming versus circulating water mattress. Clinical Question: Which method of heat conservation is considered the most effective in preventing unplanned hypothermia in pediatric patients undergoing surgical intervention? Method: A systematic review of the literature was accomplished using Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature and Pub Med. The electronic databases revealed very few studies pertaining to the maintenance of normothermia in the pediatric patient undergoing surgical intervention. Type of Evidence: Meta-analysis; systematic review; comparison studies; professional organizational guidelines/recommendations; and expert opinion. Results: A significant difference in effectiveness between warming modalities for maintaining intraoperative normothermia was found. Intraoperative normothermia is maintained more effectively with the use of forced air warming. Perioperative Nursing Implications: Disseminate information and establish multidisciplinary conformity in the perioperative environment on the best practice in preventing unplanned hypothermia in pediatric patients undergoing surgical interventions.
