Clinical Summary - Unexpectedly High Incidence of Hypothermia Before Induction of Anesthesia in Elective Surgical Patients - Australia

Study Objective: The data available about the core temperature before induction of anesthesia is not robust. Moreover, there is no data about the potential risk factors for preoperative hypothermia. This paper aimed to evaluate the incidence of hypothermia before administration of anesthesia and to identify factors that can predict its incidence.
