Fat metabolism in elderly patients with severe hypothermia.

Abstract:

Elderly patients with accidental hypothermia (core temperatures 25.0-35.5 degrees C) have been studied to determine the effect of low temperature on energy metabolism. The respiratory exchange ratios were low (median 0.75). Concentrations of plasma glycerol, non-esterified fatty acids and ketone bodies were high, and, except in the case of glycerol, rose with the duration of the hypothermia. Plasma glucose concentrations were often high but extremely variable. Arteriovenous differences across...
