Abstract

Objective: The frequency of using a temperature monitor in patients under spinal anesthesia is lower than desired. Besides, it is open to debate how and from where temperature monitoring should be done most practically in awake patients. In this study, we investigated the incidence of hypothermia in geriatric patients under spinal anesthesia and compared the temperature measurement methods.
