As ketamine hydrochloride and acepromazine is commonly used in anaesthesia of hamster and hypothermia is
the most dangerous side effect of this type of anaesthesia, it seems necessary to find a preventive method. Today
application of thermal pad as a physical method to increase body temperature is recommended in many references
references. Thermal pad as a physical intermediate in increasing the body temperature has problems and complications, hyperthermia induced by continuous monitoring of the body temperature during anaesthesia, increasing the
chance of bleeding from the surgical region and inability to sterilize thermal pads are among these side effects.
In this study the effect of injection of dexamethasone was compared with thermal pad. So we provided 18 golden
male hamster 6 month age with average weight of 150+_30 grams and
They were randomly divided into 3 groups. 1st group (control): body temperature without using dexamethasone
and thermal pad was recorded after anaesthesia. 2nd group (thermal pad): during induction of anaesthesia hamsters was placed on thermal pad. 3rd group (dexamethasone): simultaneously with injection of anaesthetic drugs
dexamethasone was administered and body temperature was recorded after 10 minuets of induction of anaesthesia.
Statistical study of data showed that the hypothermia diminished in the 3rd group slightly, but there is clear difference between body temperature before and after anaesthesia. In the 3rd group there was not a cleared difference
between body temperature before and after the anaesthesia.
