Umgebungsbedingte sowie anästhetikainduzierte Veränderungen der Körpertemperatur während längerdauernder chirurgischer Interventionen können den intra- und postoperativen Verlauf bei allen Patienten, in um so stärkerem Ausmaß jedoch bei Patienten extremer Altersgruppen (Kinder, geriatrische Patienten), erheblich komplizieren.
