Scenario Information

     Case Summary:

     ­Patient arrives to ED in the early AM after being found face-up in a shallow pool of water. It has been -5°C overnight. Patient is hypothermic at 25°C. Participants will have time for a zero point survey (prep prior to arrival), and 10 minutes to treat the patient. Objectives focus on anticipation and planning via ECMO consult, re-warming, and continuous CPR; mobilization of resources (warming equipment, LUCAS, guidelines/pre-printed orders); and teamwork related to role clarity, workload distribution, and effective communication.

     Target Learning Groups:

      Undergrad Medicine, Undergrad Nursing, Physicians, Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Interprofessional Team

     Additional Target Learning Groups:


     Proposed Setting:

     Emergency Department

     Educational Goals:

     ­Effectively treat a hypothermic patient in VFib arrest
Anticipate and plan for hypothermic arrest, including ECMO consult, re-warming, and continuous CPR
Mobilization of resources, including warming equipment, LUCAS, hypothermia protocol/pre-printed orders
Effective teamwork related to role clarity, workload distribution, and effective communication
