The treatment of postoperative shivering with nefopam hydrochloride



The treatment of postoperative shivering with nefopam hydrochloride



Minerva Anestesiologica 59(6): 317-320



After having considered the physiopathological mechanism of shivering, the authors have estimated in a randomised study the effects of the resolution of shivering by nefopam hydrochloride. This drug a dose of 0.20 mg/kg resolved the symptoms in 100% of cases and the placebo hasn't resolved a case so that case it also obtained the same effects. The authors have proved the efficacy of the nefopam hydrochloride in the control of postoperative shivering in the recommended dose.
