I was wondering if you guys could give me input on the use of cooling blankets in your ICUs. Our clinical practice committe has been trying to come up with standard guidelines and I have had tough time finding literature of the uses of colling blankets. What I wonder is do you place the blanket on the patient anterior or postior? Also do you use the automatic mode or manual mode and if the manual mode is used what tempature do you set the machine to cool at? Any input will be appreciated.
