Event Description
It was reported on (b)(6) 2020 at 1830 that a (b)(6) year-old male patient was insufficiently maintaining temperature during the normothermia phase of therapy on an arctic sun device, sn (b)(4). The target temperature was 37c and the patient¿s temperature was 35. 3c. The nurse stopped therapy and phoned ms&s for assistance. Ms&s confirmed that the flow rate was good while therapy was running. Ms&s advised the nurse to resume therapy and adjust the rewarm rate from 0. 25c/hr to 0. 5c/hr. The flow rate at that time was 2. 1 l/min and the water temperature was 22. 7c. Ms&s phoned the nurse an hour later and the patient was at 35. 4c. The nurse asked if she could change the settings to hypothermia. Ms&s advised the nurse on how to change the cool target temperature to the patient¿s current temperature of 35. 4c. The rewarm rate was left at the default setting of 0. 25c/hr. Ms&s called back an hour later and the patient was still at 35. 4c. Warm blankets had been added and the ventilator warmer turned on. The water temperature was at 35. 4c. A follow-up phone call was placed to the icu on 16jul2020 and the day shift nurse advised the patient had expired.
