Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device showed an error 103 (unable to communicate setting) and the water would not drop in the temperature when a one-year-old child was treated to manage the fever using an arctic sun device in the pediatric intensive care unit. While the normothermia therapy has been in place for several hours without a problem and was allowed the patient to be monitored at a target temperature of 37 °c, the arctic sun device was unable to cool the water temperature in order to continue to control the patient's temperature. Therefore, the water temperature remained at room temperature and allowed the patient to return to hyperthermia. Per follow up via ibc on 01dec2020, they delivered other arctic sun device in the icu to treat the patient and completed the therapy. The patient developed hyperthermia because the device had the issue. The icu team used the ice packs while waited for the new console.
