Factors such as temperature, oxygen, and glucose have recently been implicated in the development of surgical sepsis by either promoting or attenuating protective components of the innate immune response. Reducing infective sequelae and the improvement of the quality of care of surgical patients is a top practice priority today. These factors and their associated effects are discussed through the examination of recent clinical and scientific studies to provide an up-to-date evidence-based review.
