    Objective To study the effect of different forced-air-warming strategies on incidence of shivering during cesarean section. Methods Sixty patients scheduled for cesarean section were randomly divided into four groups: control group (group A), prewarming group (group B), combined warming group (group C) and intraoperative warming group (group D). In group A, conventional passive warming was applied. Active warming was applied only 15 minutes before the induction of anesthesia in group B, only during surgery in group D and both in group C. Core temperature, incidence of shivering and shivering grading status were recorded. Results Core body temperature in four groups were reduced over time and there was a significant lower change in group C(0.39±0.26℃)than the other three groups(P<0.01). The incidence of shivering in four groups were 60.0%, 13.3%, 6.7%, 6.7%, and was lower in group B, group C and group D than that in control group(P<0.01). Conclusions Forced-air-warming system could effectively reduce the incidence of shivering in patients with cesarean section, and prewarming combined with intraoperative warming could most effectively reduce intraoperative hypothermia.

    Objective To discover and identify genetic variants associated with hypertension through using genomewide association study (GWAS). Methods Using a approach which we called SNP-MaP (SNP microarrays and pooling), We conducted a GWAS to explore the association between multigenic polymorphisms and the development of EH in patients with essential hypertension and health controls in Tibetan population from Lhasa. In this study, DNA from patients or controls were pooled and genotyped using an affymetrix genechip array 6.0. After detected the SNP locus, the SNP frequencies were found in patients and controls respectively by sequencing or PCR-RFLP. The relationship between SNPs and EH was analyzed. Results 5 sequence tagged sites met the genomic criteria of P<9.2×10-8 after Bonferroni correction among whole-genome genetic markers. The differences of genotypes and alleles frequency distributions of the 5 SNP locus was detected by sequencing or PCR-RFLP. The results show that differences of rs17136827 and rs1866525 genotypes and alleles frequency distributions between essential hypertension and healthy controls were not statistically significant, and differences of rs 9865108, rs12541835 and rs 4547758 genotypes and alleles frequency distributions between essential hypertension and healthy controls were statistically significant in population. Conclusions Our results demonstrate that affymetrix human SNP microarrays and pooling provide a very effective platform for genome-wide analysis of SNPs which are susceptible to essential hypertension. The polymorphisms of SNPs(rs 9865108, rs12541835 and rs 4547758 ) are associated with essential hypertension in Tibetan population.
