Event Description
It was reported that the device was not cooling a hypothermia patient. Therapy began at 9:30am. Target temperature was 34c, water temperature was 5c, and the flow rate was good. The nurse stated the patient's temperature only got to 35. 6 since starting therapy. The patient was started on a propafol drip at 2 pm. The patient weighed (b)(6) kg and had 4 pads in place. Ms&s informed the nurse that the device appeared to be working properly and the issue appeared to be patient related. Ms&s discussed causes of heat generation and counter warming, recommended a universal pad be added to the patients lower abdomen, and discussed the importance of following medication protocol for heat generation. The nurse stated she would apply the bair hugger, add a universal pad and call back in an hour with an update. Approximately 1 hour later, the nurse applied that pad and stated the patient temperature was 35. 2c, water temperature was 4. 9c and the flow rate was 2. 6.
