This present study was undertaken to observe the changes of superficial and deep body temperature in 80 surgical patients during general anesthesia. it calculated total body heat loss and compared the effects of several drugs which were used for relieving postoperative shivering. The results were as follows: 1) The mean skin temperature increased contineously over that of the control value after 20 minutes of induction of anesthesia. But there was little significance. 2) Tympanic temperature decreased significantly after 20 minutes(p<0.005), esophageal temperature decreased after 60 minutes(p<0.05), and rectal temperature decreased significantly after 90 minutes(p<0.05). 3) There was continuous loss of body heat during general anesthesia. 4) Pethidine has an excellent effect for relieving postoperative shivering.
