"Delivery of *heated (41 to 45°C [105.8 to 113°F]), humidified oxygen *and
IV fluids heated to 40 to 44°C (104 to 111°F) prevents further cooling and
is desirable for any patient" ....Excerpt from uptodate.com under the
heading "Hypothermia management in children"
I have found support in literature for other rewarming techniques , but
Brown DJA, et al. NEJM 2012 (Nov 15: 2012) and Ven der Ploeg G, et al.
Resuscitation 2010, in these references , have not suggested heated
oxygen as one of rewarming agent .
Just curious anybody is using Heated oxygen at 41 deg C for rewarming
treatment, of course we have other treatments , but seems as an attractive
choice . When I reached out to our Resp therapy dept, they said they have
not heard about this Rx for hypothermia .
Any body using this ? any references?
Wishing a great 2018 to everybody
