Hypothermia leads to increased morbidity and mortality. Heat loss mainly occurs during anesthesia and surgery. Therefore prevention of hypothermia in pediatric patients undergoing general anesthesia is very important. However, there is very little information about effectiveness of various insulating materials used in the operating room.
Objective: To compare the effectiveness of cotton and plastic for prevent intraoperative hypothermia in pediatric patients.
