Hello, Yuni Imanniarti, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.

I've searched several sources but no one has determined the room temperature specifically for post-C-section patients. After any surgery, the patient will be taken to the recovery room to be monitored after surgery. The length of monitoring depends on the type of surgery and how long the patient is awake after surgery. In terms of temperature, it is important that the patient does not develop perioperative hypothermia, or body temperature that is too low. It is said that hypothermia is if the body temperature is below 36 degrees Celsius. In some surgeries, the patient's body is deliberately hypothermic for medical reasons, which is called therapeutic hypothermia. Some of these are feared to occur if the patient has perioperative hypothermia:

1.    Increased blood loss

2.    An increased risk of wound infection

3.    An increased risk of heart problems

4.    Increased risk of pain

5.    Extend healing time

To prevent perioperative hypothermia, health workers must do this before surgery. Things to do are to monitor body temperature and other vital signs on a regular basis from before surgery, during surgery, to after surgery, giving special blankets, or doing room temperature warming. The following are sources that can be used as references:

2.    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2780228/

3. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4383851/

In addition to temperature, there are many things that must be considered in an effort to heal after a cesarean section. The following is an article about post-C-section healing, which can be read for additional information.

That's it, I hope it's useful.
