Postoperative shivering after laparoscopic surgery : a pilot study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Shivering är ett fenomen som uppstår hos patienterna postoperativt. Det innebär att patienten har okontrollerbara muskelskälvningar som gör att patienten darrar, skälver eller huttrar i mer än 15 sekunder. Shivering påverkar kroppen negativt, men är också obehagligt och ett onödigt lidande för patienten. I takt med den tekniska utvecklingen utarbetas nya operationstekniker och idag utförs flera operationer med laparoskopisk teknik. Pilotstudiens syfte var att undersöka före-komsten av postoperativ shivering hos patienter som opererats med laparoskopisk teknik. Denna studie har gjorts empirisk med en kvantitativ ansats. En egen konstruerad enkät tillsammans med ett mätinstrument har använts vid datainsamlingen. I pilotstudien deltog 33 patienter i ålders-spannet 23-78 år. Resultatet i pilotstudien visar att det var sex (n=6) av alla (n=33) patienterna i studien shivrade efter genomgången laparoskopisk kirurgi. Då studien är gjord i en liten skala är resultatet inte generaliserbart, men det går ändå att se att vissa påverkande faktorer så som till exempel anestesiläkemedel kan bidra till att patienterna shivrar.

Abstract [en]

Shivering is a phenomenon that occurs in patients postoperatively. This means that the patient has uncontrollable muscles tremors which allow the patient to tremble or shiver in more than 15 seconds. Previous research shows that shivering have a negative effect on the body, but is also an unpleasant and unnecessary suffering for the patient. In step, with today's rapid development in technology, more and more patients undergo surgery with laparoscopic techniques. The pilot- study aimed to investigate the incidence of postoperative shivering in patients who were surgical operated with laparoscopic technique. This empirical study has been done with a quantitative approach. Self-designed questionnaires, together with an instrument were used in the data col-lection. The pilot study enrolled 33 patients in the age range 23-78 years. The results of the pilot study suggest that the presence of shivering was little in relation to laparoscopic surgery, six (n = 6) of all (n = 33) patients in the study was shivering. When the study is made of a small scale is the result not possible to generalize, but you can still see that certain stressors, such as anesthesia drugs may contribute the patient shivering.
