An Under-Body Blanket is More Effective than an Over-Body Blanket in Reducing Intraoperative Hypothermia in Patients Undergoing Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy: A Retrospective Study

Conclusion: The under-body blanket was observed to be more effective in preventing intraoperative hypothermia in patients undergoing RALP than the over-body blanket.Purpose: The study aimed to investigate whether an under-body blanket is more effective than an over-body blanket in preventing intraoperative hypothermia in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP).
Methods: This was a retrospective observational study. We analyzed the medical records of patients who underwent RALP between January 2014 and December 2015 at Nippon Medical School Hospital. The patients were divided into the following groups: under-body blanket group (n=89) and over-body blanket group (n=43).
Results: The number of patients using the under-body blanket and the over-body blanket was 89 and 43, respectively. Intraoperative temperatures (at 3 h, 4 h, 5 h, and 6 h after induction of anesthesia, and at the end of the operation) and the postoperative temperature (on arrival in the ward and at 1 h, 2 h, 3 h, and 4 h after arrival in the ward) were significantly higher in the under-body than the over-body blanket group. The maximum and minimum temperatures of the patients and the serum creatinine levels were significantly higher in the under-body blanket group than in the over-body blanket group just after the operation, on postoperative day 1, and just before discharge. The postoperative course was not significantly different between the two groups.
Conclusion: The under-body blanket was observed to be more effective in preventing intraoperative hypothermia in patients undergoing RALP than the over-body blanket.
