Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not cooling on the arctic sun device. The hypothermia patient was cooling for 2 hours. The nurse stated that the flow was showing as 'marginal' and the patient was slow to cool. The patient temperature was 97. 8f (36. 5c), the target temperature was 91. 4f (33c), the water temperature was 42. 4f(5. 8c) and the flow rate was 1. 8l/min. There were four large arctic gel pads in place with some exposed abdomen. The patient weighed (b)(6) lbs. Nurse administered fentanyl and versed. Nurse stated that there was no signs of shivering. Ms&s explained that the flow rate of 1. 7l/min or greater is acceptable, however, the arctic sun device might displayed 'marginal flow' on the screen saver. Ms&s discussed adding an additional universal pad to the abdomen. The patient trend indicator showed 2 arrows down and 1 hour later, the patient was now at 35. 9c and the water temperature was -5. 2c. The user observed shivering or possibly seizure activity and administered a paralytic (norco). The patient trend indicator showed 2 arrows down and during the call it went to thermoneutral. Ms&s advised to be diligent with skin checks. Bair hugger was already in place for counter warming and the therapy continued. Additional information was received from biomed via technical support on 27jul2020. Per technical support, the device checked out fine and was put back into service.
