Event Description
It was reported that the patient was above target. The target temperature was 36c. The complainant stated that medium pads were used and there was at least 10 inches of exposed abdomen. No universal pad were available. The patient's temperature was below 36 initially, but increased to 36. 8c. The patient was shivering and jerking so propofol and fentanyl were administered. The water temperature was 18c, the flow rate was 2. 3 lpm. The patient weighed (b)(6). The complainant was informed that the patient weighed more than (b)(6) and would need 4 large pads and 1 universal pad for optimal therapy. The nurse called back after one hour and reported that the patient's temperature was still 33. 8c, water temperature was 10c, and the flow rate was 2. 1 lpm. The pads were switched. Per follow up, after switching to large pads, the patient was able to complete therapy without any issue. The device remained in service.
