Dr. Yassir Fadhil Hussien

Background Inadvertent hypothermia during operation with a bodily temperature of not more than 36C is a communal avoidable problem with numerous adverse outcomes. The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence of hypothermia during operation amongst patients undergoing surgery in Al Falluga Teaching Hospital in the duration of September to November 2019. Methods: This Cohort study directed to find out the occurrence of hypothermia during operation and related outcomes amongst patients operated in the Al Falluga Teaching Hospital. All patients undergoing general anesthesia whether elective or emergency surgery were included in this study. Results: Overall occurrence of hypothermia during operation was 44.3 %. Follow up rate of hypothermia were in between 15.7 %, 35.4 %, 41.6 %, and 43.2 % in the duration of lhour, 2 hours, 3hour or 4 hours, respectively after the initiation of anesthesia induction. Factors that associated with reduced risk of hypothermia were live warming (0.35, 95 % CI, 0.25-0.94), Body mass index greater than or equal to 25 (0.37, 95 % CI, 0.26-0.57), elevated reference point bodily temperature (0.13, 95 % CI, 0.13-0.76). Conclusion: This study has successfully determined that the incidence of hypothermia is exceptionally high in this sample of patients. This study has equally provided evidence about the outcomes with the consequences of hypothermia in patients.
