Would fresh organs be too hot to hold?

Our organs are hot right? Like 98 degrees! If you cut someone open and stuck your hand in right away, would it burn you or hurt?

    98.6 F is considered "blood warm".  The water in your show is AT LEAST 20 F higher than that, so no, you wouldn't burn yourself.

    What a ludicrous question. I have never heard of a surgeon having to be rushed to the burns unit because he burnt his hands on a patient's organs. No, your organs are not too hot to touch.

    However, if you start cutting yourself open to feel them you will have far more serious problems than burnt hands.

    98 degrees F isn't very hot.  You live it every day.  Are you burning up from it?

    It wouldn't be very pleasant to hold the internal organ of someone who just died.  But it isn't a temperature issue.  It is that the organ came from someone who just died that is the issue.

    Bad enough to have a pet die in your arms and be dead but still warm.  Not fun.

    98 degrees is not too hot to hold. It’s your body temp. If you put your finger in your mouth, that’s 98 degrees.

    Your own body is at 98 F, and it doesn't burn. Bath water (or shower) is ideal  at 100 F.

    You've been outside on a 98 degree day right? 

    Coffee is usually about double that. 

  • Eh probably like a warm cup of coffee
