Q: All of the following may help in post-operative shivering except?

A) Meperidine
B) Clonidine
C) Dexmedetomidine
D) Doxapram 
E) IVF at room temperature

Answer: E

Actually, IVF at room temperature is one of the risk factor for post-operative shivering along with OR's cold environment, inhaled anesthetics, impairment of the hypothalamic thermostat due to anesthesia, exposure of body cavities to room temperature and others. Meperidine, clonidine, dexmedetomidine and doxapram helps in resolving post-operative shivering.
