Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device displayed an alert 113 ( reduced water temperature control) when the patient was cooling under hypothermia phase. The patient temperature was 33. 6c and the water temperature was 30. 3c. The flow rate was 2. 8lpm. In manual control, the outlet monitor temperature and the outlet control temperature were remained at 30. 3c and the chiller temperature was 3. 9c. Mss advised the nurse to change out the device since it could not deliver cold water. The nurse changed devices and the second device would not display the patient's temperature and displayed an alert 14 ( patient temperature 1 probe out of range). The nurse replaced the cable with the cable from the first device. The patient's temperature then displayed. The therapy was restarted then the flow rate was stabilized at 3. 1 l/min. The cable was labelled as broken and also the arctic sun device was labelled with alert 113 not cooling and sent to the biomed department. Per follow up on (b)(6) 2020, nurse stated the device was sent to biomed and the patient was able to complete therapy on the second device. Unknown about the cable status.
