Event Description
It was reported that the patient was on normothermia therapy mode on the arctic sun device. The target temperature was 36c and the patient temperature was 34. 6c but the nurse was not sure why the patient was not getting to target. Mss verified with nurse that the patient temperature was 34. 6c and the target temperature was 36c in normothermia therapy mode, water temperature was 20. 7c and flow rate was 2. 2lpm. Nurse checked event log and system diagnostics showed an alert 113 (reduced water temperature control) and no other device was available. The water level was 5, outlet monitor temperature (t1) was 21. 8c, outlet control temperature (t2) 21. 8c, inlet temperature (t3) 21. 9, chiller temperature (t4) was 6. 2c, inlet pressure was -6. 9psi, circulation pump command was 62 percentage, mixing pump command was 0 percentage, system hours were 4136, pump hours were 3768. They instructed nurse how to put the device in manual control mode with temperature at 38c and walked through draining 500ml from right drain port. The water temperature was increased to 23. 9 quickly. Also advised that it appeared the device was overfilled and that was working appropriately then and reiterated to nurse that if the water temperature did not continue to rise, or if there were additional 113 alerts to send the device to biomed.
