Anesthesia and Vibration

At the end of the surgery patients are taken to recovery room. Besides all of the patients in this process is the recovery room staff and blood pressure, pulse and blood oxygen level is followed. Some patients may doom this period. Although shivering after anesthesia is usually not dangerous and very uncomfortable after 20-30 minutes passed. Of involuntary movements may affect different parts of your body is shivering. Including possible after general anesthesia regional anesthesia (epidural or spinal) postoperative chills often occur in post-operative body temperature drop during the plant depends. This is called thermoregulatory shivering. Enabling the continuation of anesthesia, most drugs in the body during sleep by disturbing the natural balance of heat contribute to this decline. In addition, some parts of the body in cold areas may come into contact during operation. This also contributes to heat loss. Decrease in central body temperature without shivering and sometimes develop. This is called the non-thermoregulatory tremor. Anaesthetic drugs and gases may not be connected to (anticholinergic syndrome) also may be due to post-operative pain.

In order to prevent as much as possible, all measures should be taken to keep warm. Use heating blankets, given intravenous fluids (serum) and to give blood, such as by heating. Despite all the measures taken to protect the body temperature of shivering after general anesthesia occurs in approximately 4 patients, l'. The risk of occurrence of shivering after general anesthesia, regional anesthesia and takes a little longer than high. Young adults are at higher risk than patients in other age groups.

Although the vibrations and prefer to wait to pass itself although there are drugs used to spend flickering. However, no drug is 100% effective and they all have side effects. The most effective drugs Meperidine, tramadol and magnesium sulphate. If you have pain after surgery, the jitter will reduce your pain treatment.

Usually self-shivering stops. Is not a hazardous situation. However, it increases the body's oxygen needs of patients may need to be given oxygen through a mask.
