Event Description
It was reported that the patient had been rewarming for 8 hours and had not reached the target temperature. The patient started rewarming at 33. 3c and was now at 34. 5c. The water temperature was 25. 4c, the flow rate was 2. 9lpm and there was a good fit to the pads. The trend indicator showed one arrow down. The patient had been administered nimbex. The nurse stated that she increased the rewarm rate and the water temperature was appropriately adjusted. She then lowered it back to 0. 3c/hr and the rewarm from read from 34. 5c to 37c at 0. 3c/hr. The water level was 5 and it was explained how overfilling the device can lead to the water heating slowly. The nurse stated that no water was added and she did not want to drain any water. A call back was made two hours later and the patient's temperature was 35. 2c and the water temperature was 32c. The nurse drained 500ml from the right drain port. Another follow up call was made two hours later and the nurse stated that the nimbex was stopped once the patient's temperature began to rise. The patient was now 37c and the patient was shivering again. The water temperature was 9c. The patient received demerol for the shivering.
