Event Description
It was reported that the normothermia patient was on arctic sun device for fever control. The nurse reported the device has been alarming all the day. The patient temperature was 37. 9 c the target temperature was 37. 5 c but it was lowered to 36. 5 c and they thought it would cool the patient better. A four large pads were in place with good coverage and the patient weight with 83. 3 kgs. The water temperature was 6. 2 c the flow rate was 2. 5 lpm and the bair hugger was in place. The event log showed multiple alerts 52 (extended period of cold water) and alarm 53 (prolonged cold water exposure). Ms and s discussed the probable cause of the alarm and alert heat generation and importance of prompt treatment. The nurse admitted the patient has been shivering intermittently all the day. Ms and s explained how the shivering and heat generation leads to cold water exposure as the device worked to cool the patient. It was directed to work to cool function on the screen and explained what it means when the orange bars appear. The nurse confirmed that the device has a good flow rate and the water was cold. The device was responding appropriately to changes in the patient temperature. Ms and s advised to be diligent with skin checks as prolonged cold water exposure may increase the risk of skin injury. The patient will administer shivering medications as per protocol. It was recommended to discuss the prolonged cold water exposure with the physician.
