Abstract: Unplanned postoperative hypothermia is associated with several adverse effects. Previous studies have identified forced-air warming devices as an effective method to prevent hypothermia. This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of forced-air warming with routine thermal care in reducing the adverse effects of hypothermia such as intraoperative blood loss and surgical site infection (SSI).
