Abstract

Implications

Aggressive warming better maintained core temperature (36.5° vs 36.1°C) and slightly decreased intraoperative blood pressure. Aggressive warming also decreased blood loss by approximately 200 mL. Aggressive warming may thus, be beneficial in patients undergoing hip arthroplasty.
