Objective: To explore the risk factors of chills in patients with scar uterus during cesarean section, and formulate nursing strategies. Methods: A total of 85 patients with scar uterus who underwent cesarean section in The Second Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University from February 2023 to April 2023 were selected as the study subjects. The incidence of chills during cesarean section was recorded. According to whether chills occurred, the pa-tients were divided into chills group and non-chills group. The baseline cha-racteristics were compared between chills group and non-chills group, to analyze the risk factors that affect the chills of patients with scar uterus during cesarean section. Results: A total of 36 (42.4%) patients with scar uterus occurred chills during cesarean section. There were statistically significant dif-ferences between the two groups in the preoperative pain score (t=57.234, P=0.002), state anxiety score (S-AI) (t=1.230, P=0.000), trait anxiety score (T-AI) (t=0.039, P=0.000), operating room temperature (t=3.601, P=0.000), insulation measures (χ2=7.522, P=0.006), and emergency admission (χ2=4.410, P=0.036). In addition, multivariate Logistic regression analysis showed that S-AI was an independent risk factor for the occurrence of chills in patients with scar uterus during cesarean section. Conclusion: Preoperative pain score, S-AT, T-AI, operating room temperature, insulation measures and emergency admission are closely related to the occurrence of chills in patients with scar uterus during cesarean section. Hence, the related factors should given more attention in clinical practice to reduce the incidence of chills in specific clinical practice.
