Aim and Background:

 

hypothermia is a common complication in surgeries patients and may

have serious consequences in both mother and fetal in cesarean surgery. This study was

implemented to assess the effect of intravenous (IV) infusion of warm fluids on decreasing

hypothermia in mothers and its consequences on newborns.

Methods and Materials:

 

This randomized controlled clinical trial was done on 70 candidates of

elective caesarean surgery. First group received IV infusion of 38º C fluids, second group got IV

infusion of room temperature fluids. Mother`s core temperature, during the surgery and after the

surgery, systolic blood pressure, pulse rate, postoperative shivering and APGAR of newborns

were assessed.

Findings:

 

The administration of warmed fluids prevented shivering (p < 0.01) and hypothermia

30 minutes postoperatively and 1 hour after in the recovery (p<0.01). There were no significant

differences in other variables.

Conclusions:

 

Infusion of warmed IV fluids can decrease hypothermia and its complications

namely shivering in cesarean section
