Sharing our Normothermia Knowledge

  • Clinical research shows that maintaining a patient’s core body temperature before, during and after surgery can help reduce the risk of surgical site infections and other serious complications¹². Explore the information below to learn more about the importance of maintaining normothermia.


Temperature Management Webinars

  • This course reviews the causes and consequences of unintended perioperative hypothermia and discusses conducting a temperature review; best practices, and challenges.

  • This course describes the significance of perioperative hypothermia and identifies strategies for infusing evidence-based practices for the prevention of perioperative hypothermia.

  • This course will identify the different professional organizations that provide guidelines and recommendations related to maintaining patient normothermia and hypothermia prevention. The current guideline recommendations will also be covered.

  • This course will Identify key messages presented from clinical studies regarding patient prewarming and explain what Redistribution Temperature Drop is and the implications it has on nursing care, in hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.

  • This course describes key interventions in preparation of the patient for surgery, identifies relevant studies that support these measures and introduces guidelines and recommended practices that support each intervention

  • This course describes the significance of perioperative hypothermia in ambulatory surgery and identifies strategies for infusing evidence-based practices for the prevention of perioperative hypothermia.

  • This course will explain how the body's thermoregulation system works and identify adverse patient outcomes associated with unintended perioperative hypothermia. Prewarming will be defined and its benefits discussed through associated clinical studies. Industry initiatives/guidelines will also be reviewed.

  • This course will provide an overview on the current practice of intraoperative thermal management, outcomes associated with hypothermia, and organizational aspects of a modern perioperative thermal management program.

  • Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to discuss the importance of monitoring core body temperature in perioperative patients and describe zero-heat-flux technology.

  • During this course, learn the importance of monitoring core body temperature in surgical patients, review guidelines and recommended practices and identify the pros and cons of the various temperature monitoring methods of monitoring body temperature.

  • This course will explain how the body’s thermoregulation system works, identify several adverse patient outcomes related to hypothermia and provide an overview of some warming interventions that may assist in ASC-13 compliance.

  • This webinar will touch on topics including perioperative interventions that will help to reduce the risk of SSI and clinical studies that support these measures.
