The risk factors, associated condition and at-risk population of this diagnosis will be explored using Fehring’s diagnostic content validation model (Fehring, 1987). A panel of international experts will rank the relevancy of each diagnostic indicator of Risk for perioperative hypothermia to reach the level of evidence 2.3 (NANDA-I, 2018-2020).
