Any tips for staying warm in the OR? I started my surgery rotation Monday and although it's not the specialty for me, I am enjoying many aspects of surgery. The one problem I have had is staying warm. One case on Monday lasted about 3 hours or so and by the end of the surgery and waking the patient up, I was shivering and my hands were so cold, they were kinda blue. Has anyone else experienced this and found a way to overcome it?
