hypothermia clinical audit and accompanying editorial published

very excited to have an editorial published alongside Nicole’s paper describing a clinical audit of hypothermia management.

Dr Alex Dugdale wrote a very nice editorial to accompany the paper, describing the potential for clinical audits to be performed in practice. Nicole’s paper describes her idea to assess and improve our management of post-operative hypothermia in dogs. with some small, practical changes in management we were able to reduce our time to return 75% of patients to a normal body temperature from 7.5 hours to 3.5 hours; not perfect, but a dramatic improvement.

Paper available through JSAP and as a preprint (there were important changes to the manuscript as we progressed through review). The editorial is free to access through the journal’s website.
