The contribution of this programme of research has been to improve perioperative temperature management in daily clinical practice. The papers presented in this thesis represent a logical and coordinated programme designed to provide theatre teams with information that will allow them to make clinically, environmentally and financially informed decisions about the most effective means of preventing inadvertent perioperative hypothermia. The areas in which this research has contributed include: • determining the accuracy of new and minimally invasive temperature measurement devices • determining the relative effectiveness of warming devices • the safety of warming devices • increasing the number of patients who benefit from perioperative warming • the adoption of best perioperative warming practice.
