Interventions of Kimberger et al for Setting the Body's Shivering Threshold to a Lower Temperature in a Patient Undergoing Therapeutic Hypothermia

Specialty:

Critical Care
Emergency Medicine

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

Shivering is a normal physiologic response that may limit the level of therapeutic hypothermia that can be achieved. Kimberger et al identified interventions that can reduce the body temperature at which shivering is triggered, thus allowing more effective hypothermia. The authors are from the University of Bern in Switzerland and the University of Louisville.
