Comparison of normothermia maintenance between resistive blanket and forced air warming systems in renal transplant surgery


The maintenance of normal body temperature is important for all patients undergoing anesthesia to maintain important body functions. To help patients maintain normal body temperature during the surgery, a warming device is used. This study will compare the effectiveness of a resistive blanket warming device to the standard of care forced air warming device.
