This article is quasi-experimental due to the use of two different blanket temperatures for safety and comfort. The study randomized adult patients into two groups, a study group that received blankets at 155 degrees F, and a control group that received blankets at 110 degrees F. The results of the study concluded that it was safe for patients to receive blankets with a temperature of 155 degrees F and that these patients had a higher skin temperature within 10 minutes and thermal comfort. Although this study used randomization, it is still quasi-experimental as it is looking for a causal relation between blanket temperatures and patient comfort. Sutton, L. T., Baker, F. S., Faile, N.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
