Key points of this webinar

  1. Prevention of perioperative hypothermia to avoid the adverse outcomes associated with perioperative hypothermia
  • Supporting evidence: Perioperative hypothermia is associated with a higher intra- and postoperative blood loss.
  • Supporting evidence: Perioperative hypothermia is associated with higher transfusion rates.
  • Supporting evidence: Perioperative hypothermia is associated with more surgical site infections.
  • Supporting evidence: Perioperative hypothermia is associated with morbid cardiac events in patients at risk of coronary heart disease.
  1. A modern perioperative thermal management strategy includes four important measures
  • Active prewarming before induction of anaesthesia
  • Intraoperative warming
  • Fluid warming and
  • Monitoring of core temperature

 

Content

  1. Show the relevance of perioperative hypothermia and the associated complications
  2. Anaesthesia leads to perioperative hypothermia
  3. An active thermal management is helpful to prevent perioperative hypothermia

Learning Objectives

This webinar will enable anaesthesiologists to

  • recognize the importance of perioperative hypothermia prevention
  • know the most important adverse outcomes associated with perioperative hypothermia
  • know the risk factors for the development of perioperative hypothermia
  • know the importance of active prewarming before induction of anaesthesia
  • know the importance of intraoperative warming therapy
  • know the indications for fluid warming
  • know the possibilities and pitfalls of different core temperature measurement sites
  • develop strategies to minimize intraoperative hypothermia

 

Practical skills to be acquired after attending to this Webinar

The user is able to

  • Recognise the risk of patients to get hypothermic.
  • Monitor core temperature adequately during the perioperative period
  • Prevent perioperative hypothermia by an appropriate thermal management strategy

 

 

Affective skills acquired after attending to this Webinar

The user is aware of

  • the intra- and postoperative complications associated with perioperative hypothermia
  • that an appropriate thermal management strategy is necessary to prevent perioperative hypothermia
  • that active prewarming is a necessary part of a thermal management strategy
  • that failure to do so will result in freezing and shivering of the patients in the PACU
  • that failure to do so will result in relevant postoperative problems like surgical site infections and cardiac complications

This webinar is targeted at Anaesthesiologists who are working in the operating room with patients.
