Event Description
It was reported that an arctic sun device was getting alert 113 (reduced water temperature control) and the patient was in rewarming phase. Water temperature was 30. 6 c, patient temperature was via esophageal probe 33. 8 c, via rectal probe connected to device 34. 8 c. There was a good flow, water level had 4 bars. Rewarm from reading was 33. 6 c, rate 0. 25 c/hr and target temperature was 37 c. Ms&s decided to check heater in case it was an overfill scenario. They rained 400 cc off right drain port and set device to 42 c in manual mode. Water temperature was at 41 c range. The user put device back into rewarming. Ms&s explained temperature lag time difference with esophageal probe versus rectal probe and caused for alert 113. Ms&s recommended checking alternate source for temperature to see which correlates more closely and also explained that if the user gets alert 113 again to take device out of service.
