Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device continued to alarm that the water temperature was too cold. Patient temperature was 38c and target temperature was 37c. Therapy was currently stopped. The alarm was bothering the family and patient wanted to know if they could turn it off. Alert 52 (extended period of cold water) and alarm 53 (prolonged cold-water exposure) was confirmed. It was also reported that the circulating water temperature had been below 10°c (50°f) for 8 of the previous 10 hours. Mss advised that alarm 52 would recur after 1 hour if the condition continued. After the device had issued 11 extended cold water exposure alarms, it would issue a prolonged cold water exposure alarm, alarm 53 which would stop therapy as a safety feature. Extended periods of cold water delivery might increase the risk for skin injury. Mss advised the complainant to assess patients¿ skin underneath the arctic gel pads and stated that if skin looked normal, then therapy could be resumed. This alarm could not be disabled. Mss suggested addressing heat generation per facility protocol and adding counter warming and chilled saline.
