Introduzione: lo scopo dello studio è il confronto tra due differenti presidi per la prevenzione dell’ipotermia intraoperatoria. I device analizzati sono il Forced-air warming e la coperta termo attiva (Easy Warm®).
Obiettivo: valutazione dei due presidi per la prevenzione dell’ipotermia intraoperatoria. Nello studio è stato poi definito un secondo obiettivo legato alla correlazione tra posizione del paziente ed andamento della temperatura corporea.
