Comparison of Vital HEAT (vH2) Temperature Management System to Upper-body Forced-air Warming


A Comparison Study of the Vital HEAT (vH2) Temperature Management System to Upper-body Forced-air Warming in Patients Undergoing Open Abdominal Surgery Under General Anesthesia




The primary objective of this study is to determine if the intraoperative distal esophageal (core) temperature with vitalHEAT warming is non-inferior to upper-body forced-air warming in patients undergoing open colectomy under general anesthesia. This is a randomized study.
