Bulent Devrim Akcay, Omur Ilban.

Abstract
Antipsychotic drugs have the potential to affect thermoregulation. Hypothermia is a side effect that can be seen when using antipsychotic drugs. In this case report, we examined the body temperature changing effects of chlorpromazine as an antipsychotic drug that is administered for sedation purposes in patients exhibiting agitated and excited behaviors in intensive care units.

Key words: chlorpromazine, body temperature, intensive care unit
