Normal thermoregulation in infants and children:
Afferent thermal sensing:
In the periphery, anatomically distinct cold and warm receptors detect the ambient temperature ,send impulses through A delta fibers and C fibers along the spinothalamic tract in the anterior spinal cord.
Mild intraoperative hypothermia is mainly due to:
