Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device received a low flow alert (alert 02) and the flow rate was 1. 0 lpm. While checking for the kinks in the lines and emptying the arctic gel pads, the nurse stated that there were two arctic gel pads on the thighs. Ms&s explained that this was not sufficient for cooling and not sufficient for maintaining the target temperature. Also, stated that the low flow had nothing to do with the amount of water in the arctic sun device and showed where the water level indicator was located and asked how to fill the arctic sun device. They were targeted for normothermia of 37. 0c and the patient temperature was 37. 2c, but the nurse stated the temperature had gone up to the 39c range. Ms&s advised that they should get a low reservoir alarm to call back the helpline. The nurse asked whether they could trick the arctic sun device by adding the pads, but not placed them on the patient. Ms&s explained that this could be done, but the arctic sun device would not be efficient in maintaining the target temperature. The patient had some sort of ostomy.
