Effects of epidural anesthesia on thermal sensation
Regional anesthesia and pain medicine
and Objectives: Epidural anesthesia decreases the core temperatures triggering vasoconstriction and shivering, presumably by increasing apparent (as opposed to actual) lower-body temperature. We therefore tested the hypothesis that epidural anesthesia also increases the overall perception of warmth. Methods: We studied 8 volunteers in a randomized, cross-over protocol separated by at least 48 hours. On one day, epidural anesthesia was induced to a T11 sensory level; the other day was a controldoi:10.1053/rapm.2001.25924 pmid:11707791 fatcat:iww5353m4zh4vckchokvfyrdta
