Brief Summary: Shivering is defined as an involuntary, repetitive activity of skeletal muscles. The incidence of shivering has been found to be quite high, approximately 40-50% in different studies. It can double or even triple oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production. Shivering also increase intraocular and intracranial pressure, and may contribute to increased wound pain, delayed wound healing, and delayed discharge from post-anaesthetic care. Apart from being an uncomfortable experience, its deleterious effects deserve primary prevention and rapid control on occurence.

Conditions:
