Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device was giving an alert 02 (low flow) when patient started hypothermia therapy. The flow rate was 0 l/min, the inlet pressure was -0. 4 psi. No bends, kinks or damage was noted to the tubings or fluid delivery line. Guided nurse through disconnecting and reconnecting arctic gel pads using the recommended technique and was listening for the audible click. System diagnostics showed the flow rate as 0 l/min and the inlet pressure as -0. 4 psi. Therapy was stopped and in the manual control, the flow rate was 0. 1 l/min, the inlet pressure was -1. 2 psi and the circulation pump was 100%. The fluid delivery line was removed from the arctic sun device. Nurse placed thumb over the left port and very slight suction noted. Recommended switching out the arctic sun device and informed that the circulation pump might need further troubleshooting. Recommended to label the arctic sun device as low flow and send to biomed. Nurse was unsure if another arctic sun device was available.
