The Effects of Mild Hypothermia on Coagulation and Haemodynamic Variables in Anaesthetized Rabbits

This study investigated the effect of mild hypothermia on prothrombin and partial thromboplastin time, platelet count, fibrinogen, blood pressure and heart rate in rabbits. The coagulation mechanism was not clinically affected by mild hypothermia, while haemodynamic responses were significantly suppressed.


Objective: Hypothermia has been associated with coagulation defects. The purpose of this experimental study was to investigate the effect of mild hypothermia on clinically used coagulation tests and on haemodynamic variables.
