Event Description
It was reported that the nurse was concerned since the device received an alert 02 (low flow) in the arctic sun device. The patient temperature was 38. 2 c, water temperature was 6. 8 c, and flow rate was 1. 5 l/min. The system diagnostics showed the flow rate was 1. 6 l/min, inlet pressure was -7. 1 psi and the circulation pump was 50% with pads attached. Ms&s suggested the nurse to disconnect, straighten the tubing and reconnect the holding behind the clear clamps. The flow rate stabilized at 1. 7 l/min. After checking with the event log, there was one alert 02 (low flow), one alert 50 (patient temperature 1 erratic), one alarm 15 (unable to obtain a stable patient temperature), and alarm 14 (patient temperature probe 1 out on the range). Ms&s explained that these alerts (or) alarms were typically related to a faulty temperature probe or cable. Ms&s recommended changing the cable first and if the issue returned, then advised to change the foley probe. The nurse stated the patient was in septic shock, no obvious signs of shivering. The patient was mildly sedated. Ms&s discussed the counter warming. Per follow up with customer on (b)(6) 2020, the patient administered nimbex for micro movements. The patient continuing the therapy and no further issues noted. The user denied any probe or cable changes, and noted the device worked without alarms.
