Event Description
It was reported that nurse changed the arctic sun device to rewarming mode 4 hours ago, but the patient was cooling instead of warming. Stated that the target temperature was 36c, patient temperature was 35. 1c, they wanted to warm at 0. 25c/hr to 37c, flow rate was good, water temperature was 17c and no alarms in the event log. Nurse had tried to fix it by pushing some buttons and asked others for help before calling the mss. Nurse stated that currently rewarm temperature was 35. 3c, nurse did not recall what it had been earlier. Mss instructed nurse to increase target temperature on cool side since this was probably why patient temperature dropped. Nurse was not able to change the target to higher than 35. 5c. And stated in more menu setting, all were correct. Mss confirmed did not need any information and asked the nurse to push therapy selection and choose new patient. When doing this nurse was able to increase the target temp to 36c. Mss asked nurse to confirm with doctor where they wanted to start rewarming from and doctor said to start from current temperature so adjusted target temperature to 35. 2c with 0. 2c/hr rewarm rate to 37c. Mss was unclear why device cooled patient to 35. 1c but programmed rewarming mode correctly now.
