The target temperature was 36c, patient temperature was 35. 6c, water temperature was 5. 7c and flow rate was 1. 8lpm. The weight of the patient was noted to be 92kgs and had four large pads in place with good coverage. Mss discussed causes of that alert and heat generation. Nurse stated that the patient had been shivering and reported that the patient was administered with one dose of a paralytic earlier and the shivering temporarily stopped, but then the patient was shivering again.
