So on a normal day anyone of us might be Chilling with Vern, but as of this morning we are simply Chilling…Vern.
So many of you have probably heard that Vernon has had a bit of a fever over the past 24-48hrs. Allie asked me to throw up a quick post with some information on how they are managing it.
The fever has been reduced from a high of 101.5f with a mix of ice baths, tylenol and other cold water/air treatments.
To explain a bit more in detail. They want to cool Vernon’s core but keep him from shivering. How do they do that?
Underneath this blanket he has the Arctic Sun cold air pads on his legs and chest which circulate cold water (around 40 degrees f) around his body.
Then they keep the Equator (Snuggle Warm) air blanket over his body to keep the external body from shivering. So a mix of cold for the core and warm for the external comfort.
The result of this and Tylenol…99.7f for now and dropping.
