Project Title Octopus Tepid Sponging Towel
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Octopus Tepid Sponging Towel is a new product uses non-invasive nursing procedure to reduce high body temperature above 38 degrees Celsius. It helps to reduce the high heat of body through heat loss by conduction, convection, radiation and evaporation of water from the skin (Casey, 2000). It is different from traditional drugs administration such as antipyretic, and anti inflammatory and antibiotic for control of infection process with high fever (Thompson & Kagan, 2010). The innovation is motivated by the problem faced in Sarawak General Hospital where there is no tepid sponging towel provided. At most of the time, pillow case, baby napkin and big gauze being utilized. The product aims to produce standard tool for nursing procedure (tepid sponging) which is user friendly, easy to manage and maintain because it came in one set. Octopus tepid sponging towel has great potential for commercialize in local and international market for individually and healthcare center as there is high awareness that high temperature may cause major complication to the nervous system and multi organ failure (Faulds & Meekings, 2013).
