Cold shivers & shakes

The feeling of being cold and getting the shakes in the Recovery room is quite common. Despite things like blankets, warm air blowers and intravenous fluid warmers being used during the operation, some patients develop these feelings for a short while. They may be related to an actual drop in body temperature or to the gases used to keep you asleep. They are easily managed and settle quickly. Of course these effects are more common with the longer and more major operations.
