Effects of Three Cooling Blanket Temperatures

I will need to develop a study (as an advance practice nurse in an ICU) to determine the effects of three cooling blanket temperatures on:
1) time to cool
2) shivering and
3) self-perceived discomfort in adults with fever

In your response:
A. Identify an appropriate study design
B. Diagram the study design
C. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the design supporting your selection.

Hi,

Interesting study!

Response:

A. Identify an appropriate study design

An appropriate study design is an experimental design to determine I there is a significant difference between the three cooling temperatures on three levels of the depended variable (time to cool, shivering and self- perceived discomfort in adults with fever). Objective - seeks precise measurement ...

Solution Summary

In a study on the effects of three cooling blanket temperatures, this response provides assistance to identify an appropriate study design, diagram the study design and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the design supporting this selection.
