Event Description
It was reported that the hypothermia patient was cooling on arctic sun device for about 2 hours and the 24 hour timer was counting down. Nurse stated that the device was set to start the 24 hour timer at the target temperature, but the patient had not reached the target temperature. Nurse stated that the target temperature was 36c, however, the target temperature was decreased to 33c after that it reached target temperature of 36c. Nurse stated that the patient temperature was 36. 1c, water temperature was 5. 6c and the flow rate was 2. 2l/min. Mss explained that the timer started when the patient reached the target temperature of 36c. Mss discussed the options of adjusting the timer back to 24 hours, when the patient reached 33c or starting the device as a new case with the target temperature of 33c. Nurse reported that the patient was generating heat due to seizure activity or shivering, they were assessing the patient, but had not addressed the heat generation yet. The nurse was not sure how long it may take the patient to reach 33c due to the heat generation, so the nurse wanted to start therapy as a new case.
