It was reported that the device was not cooling a hypothermia patient. The target temperature was 33c. Sedatives were given but the patient was not paralyzed and was moving a lot then a paralytic was given. The nurse noticed there was a cool patient box blinking at the bottom of the screen and became confused. Ms&s explained the cool patient box will gray in and out when the device is running. Cooling settings were confirmed. Patient temperature was 37. 7c, water temperature was 41. 7c and the flowrate was 2. 3lpm. The patient weighed over 100 kgs and their abdomen was exposed. Ms&s explained the importance of following their facility's drug protocol for sedation and paralytics in order for the patient to reach the target temperature within their protocol time frame.
