Abstract

Background: Intraoperative hypothermia is a major adverse effect of general anesthesia. The different anesthetics may influence thermoregulation differently. Proteins or amino acids have been postulated to stimulate heat production. The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of intraoperative administration of amino acid solutions on intraoperative hypothermia and postoperative shivering in two different anesthetic regimens.
