Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not maintaining the hypothermia target temperature on the arctic sun device. The patient's temperature was 36. 4c, the target temperature was 33c, the water temperature was 5. 9c, and the flow rate was 1. 7l/min. There was a foley probe in use with no secondary probe. Therapy had began the previous morning. There were large pads in place, and ms&s recommended adding a universal pad. The nurses stated that the abdomen was adequately covered and refused to add a universal pad. The event log had shown an alert 02 for low flow earlier in the day. The patient was sedated but not paralyzed per the doctor's orders. The nurses denied visible shivering. The patient was in a neck brace, so the nurses were unable to check for microshivering. A urine culture was being done at the time to check for uti. An eeg was in use, showing some activity. It was unclear if the patient was seizing, but the nurses saw no jerking or outward indication of seizing. One nurse mentioned the patient posturing. The nurse stated she would speak with the doctor regarding paralyzing the patient. Ms&s reminded the nurses to be diligent with skin checks. Per follow up with the nurse via phone on 14jun2019, the patient was given a small amount of a paralytic for heat generation. The urine culture had come back positive for urinary tract infection, which the nurse stated was adding to the heat generation. The patient had since reached the target temperature and completed therapy with no further issues.
