Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not heating on the arctic sun device. They received alarm 115 (prolonged warm water exposure) and ms&s explained this alarm is a safety alarm and that staff needs to do frequent skin checks. The patient temperature was 94. 5f (34. 7c), rectal and esophageal temperature was 95. 5f (35. 3c). The water temp fluctuated between 105-107f (40-42c) and flow rate was 2. 5l/m. Patient weighed 65 kg and was using a size small arctic gel pad. Patient had no exposed abdomen, a bair hugger was applied and the patient was administered with propofol. They have been trying to warm patient for 12 hours. Ms&s had advised the complainant to continue to do skin checks and restart therapy if appropriate as the alarms do stop the therapy. Per follow-up on (b)(6) 2020 with nurse (b)(6), she confirmed patient was able to reach warming temperature after consulting with the doctor and adding blankets and a vent warmer. Per nurse, the propofol was administered per protocol, not in response to therapy. No further issues. Patient is maintaining target temperature. No further follow ups needed at this time.
