Event Description
It was reported that mss worked with biomed. A functional check showed the flow in bypass was 1. 7 lpm, the circulation pump command was 49 percentage and inlet pressure were -7psi and explained that the arctic sun device was working correctly and it's possible that the flow observed was due to an incorrect set up or a damaged pad being connected. Biomed would return the device to service. Therapy was started on the arctic sun device was giving an alert 01 (patient line open) and alert 02 (low flow). But there was no flow at all, and patient temperature was 40. 2c, target temperature was 38c, water temperature was 6. 9c. The user disconnected and reconnected using proper technique, then the user restarted therapy but there was no flow again. Device stayed on priming and then alerted no flow. So, the user placed the device in manual control at 4c. Outlet monitor temperature (t1) was 6. 9c, outlet control temperature (t2) was 7c, inlet temperature (t3) was 26. 7c (verified twice), chiller temperature (t4) was 4. 2c, water flow rate (wfr) was 0. 0 l/m, inlet pressure (ip) was 0 psi, circulation pump command (cpc) was 100 percentage, mixing pump command (mpc) was 19 percentage, water return line (wrl) was 4, system hours were 2647. 3 and pump hours was 2082. 1. Then the device alerted 41 (low internal flow). Mss advised nurse to swap out device and send this one to biomed for evaluation.
