Table 2 Change in core temperature per treatment/measuring-cycle

From: Comparing ambient, air-convection, and fluid-convection heating techniques in treating hypothermic burn patients, a clinical RCT

   Change in temperature from baseline (°C) during treatment/measuring-cycle of 2 hours

  1. Change in core temperature during each 2-hour cycle per treatment/measuring-cycle and technique. Note that in 10 treatment/measuring-cycles all 3 methods were completed and in 8 treatment/measuring-cycles just the 'conventional' and the 'Allon' methods were completed, however all 18 treatment/measuring-cycles were performed in a randomized fashion.
