Abstract

The association of hypothermia and uremia was examined in uremic patients. Body temperature below 96°F was found in 10 of 121 new uremic patients, and temperature below 95°F in only four of these 10. Sustained normalization of temperature after initiation of hemodialysis treatment characterized eight of these 10 hypothermic cases. Low temperature was also noted immediately before dialysis in 5% of another large group of patients already on established dialysis. Dialysis acutely increased body temperature in most new uremic and established dialysis patients, even when temperature before dialysis was already elevated.
