Event Description
It was reported that there was low flow on the arctic sun device. Therapy was initiated in the emergency room. They transported the patient up to the icu with the pads. The patient was being treated on arctic sun device , but they were getting low flow. They already changed a pad on the right side thinking it was the cause, but flow was still low. Flow rate was 0. 6lpm, inlet pressure was -2. 6psi, circulation pump (cp) was 100%, pump hours were 2434 and system hours were 2868. Ms&s suggested changing back to the emergency room device (dycry511) as flow was good on the initial device. Flow was 1. 5lpm, inlet pressure was -3. 5psi,circulation pump was 100%, pump hours were 1193 and system hours were 1044. Ms&s placed device in manual mode with only the fluid delivery line (fdl) attached. Flow rate was 1. 9lpm, inlet pressure was -6. 8psi, and circulation pump was 50%. They attached pads one at a time. The diagnostic was as follow: right chest (0. 8lpm, -7. 3psi, 31%cp), right thigh (1. 5lpm, -7. 2psi, 49%cp), left chest (1. 6lpm, -7. 1psi, 26%cp), left thigh (1. 4lsp, -4. 1psi, 100%cp). Ms&s asked to replace the left thigh pad with a universal pad or with the thigh pad from the set previously opened. Patient's temperature was originally 32c and was now up to 33c. Target was 35c, water was 40c and flow was 1lpm. Ms&s asked nurse to add a pad to the exposed abdomen, and to the left thigh if not already added.
