Circulating-water Garment With Forced-air Warming and Circulating-water Mattress During Abdominal Surgery


Comparison of a Circulating-water Garment With a Combination of Forced-air Warming and Circulating-water Mattress Warming During Major Abdominal Surgery




The purpose of this study is to see if the combination of a circulating water mattress beneath the patient combined with forced air warming over top of the patient will prevent hypothermia (low body temperature) just as well as a garment that circulates warm water around the patient, during your major abdominal surgery. Patients will be randomly assigned to one of these two groups.
