Abstract
Following administration of sodium pentobarbital to induce anesthesia in rats and guinea pigs, a decrease in body temperature was observed. The normal body temperature could be maintained if the animal was placed on a heated operating board constructed from items already present in the laboratory. A rectal probe connected to a temperature monitor controlled the heater-water pump which circulated warm water through the operating board whenever the animal's temperature decreased below a pre-set value.
