  • A new study, led by Dr. Paul Lee of the Garvan Institue of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia and published in Cell Metabolism, champions brown fat and posits that the process of shivering can actually produce just as much of it as fairly intense physical exercise. (nutralegacy.com)
  • But flight is clumsy at such muscle temperatures, and fast-flying bees need to heat up to at least 95 degrees F. Being able to shiver, to heat up, and to fly so early in the season means being able to go out and bring back nectar and pollen to the colony. (asknature.org)
  • This study was conducted to study the effect of a prophylactic dose of oral mirtazapine on shivering compared with a prophylactic dose of oral clonidine in patients undergoing urological surgeries under spinal anesthesia. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The purpose of this study to compare the efficacy of intravenous or intrathecal dexmedetomidine on the incidence of shivering on patients who scheduled spinal anesthesia for elective surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Scientists believe that postoperative shivering may be related to the body cooling down after going through an operation. (medindia.net)
  • Postoperative shivering is a frequent complication in patients recovering from general anesthesia. (medindia.net)
  • Postoperative shivering can also put a strain on the cardiovascular system, therefore we need to prevent it, especially in patients with cardiopulmonary risk. (medindia.net)
  • Until now, few studies have evaluated the ability of acetaminophen to prevent postoperative shivering. (medindia.net)
  • Among the women who received acetaminophen, 22.2 percent experienced postoperative shivering, compared to 73.7 percent of those who received the placebo. (medindia.net)
  • Postoperative shivering is a common occurrence following general anesthesia, which carries with it risk of poor patient experience and myocardial ischemia due to increased energy demands from muscular contractions. (lww.com)
  • Magnesium has been evaluated as a medication to reduce the risk of postoperative shivering, administered through a variety of routes, although there has not yet been a meta-analysis and systematic review evaluating the data across all available clinical trials on its efficacy. (lww.com)
  • In this infographic, we review the results of such an analysis and provide the available detail on dosing routes and regimens that can be utilized for the reduction of postoperative shivering. (lww.com)
  • Shivering and accompanying vasoconstriction have been documented to increase oxygen consumption and pressure in the brain, increase pain in the postoperative elderly, and create a cellular cascade of damage within the central nervous system - all leading to poorer clinical outcomes. (aacn.org)
  • Although this was a small clinical study, the findings suggest that exercise-induced irisin secretion could have evolved from shivering-related muscle contraction. (nih.gov)

  • Other types of body motion that are not really "shivering" include tremor , trembling , twitches , spasms , seizures and so on. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • With shivering , we obtained a similar increase in irisin level as maximum exercise, or one hour of exercise, but the timing was much shorter and the amount of energy expenditure was lower than these two types of exercise," Celi told Live Science. (yahoo.com)
  • From this, the researchers discovered that shivering muscle releases hormone called irisin, while brown fat exposed to cold environments releases a hormone called FGF21. (nutralegacy.com)
