Active external rewarming with the use of forced-air warming systems or warming blankets should be used only as a last resort to restore body temperature to normal; warming blankets should be used extremely cautiously given the risk of hypotension progressing to shock from vasodilatation secondary to decreased peripheral vascular resistance induced by warmth. A safer and effective approach to hypothermia than active external rewarming is minimally invasive central rewarming. The techniques include airway rewarming with humidified oxygen at 40◦ C (104◦ F) and intravenous fluids heated to 40◦ C to 45◦ C, and these modalities do not place the patient at risk for profound hypotension.
