Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not cooling on the arctic sun device. The nurse tried to figure out what happened last night and throughout the day. The nurse restarted therapy around 8 pm to decrease the patient's temperature and also found there was a lot of condensation on the pads and tubing. Foley probe was in use. The patient was 36. 0c. Target was 33c. Water was 5. 6c. But esophageal probe to bedside read 37. 7c. The device was beeping, but there was no error message on the display. Earlier they received alert 50, but that occurred when the nurse wrapped a chuck around the foley. The patient was on target of 33c last night, but the nurse stated the device stopped because the water was too cold. Ms&s asked the nurse to cycle the power and the beeping was resolved. Ms&s discussed alarm 53 and how therapy would stop as a safety feature. The patient was active shivering. As per the follow-up information, it was stated that once they were able to get the patient's shivering under control they were able to maintain temperature and continue therapy with no further issues.
