Abstract

Objective:

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of warm humidification of anesthetic gas nursing care on physiological factors in elderly patients during laparoscopic cancer surgery.

Methods:

Sixty elderly laparoscopic surgical patients were recruited from a medical center in Korea. The participants' physiological factors (blood pressure, body temperature, and leukocyte and neutrophil counts) were measured four times.

Results:

After warm humidification of anesthetic gas nursing care, there were significant differences in body temperatures.

Conclusions:

These findings indicate that warm humidification of anesthetic gas nursing care is effective in maintaining body temperature. Thus, this type of nursing care can be effective in elderly cancer patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery.
