Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not getting to target of 33c as quickly as expected in the arctic sun device. Also stated that they were not sure the device was working because the timer was not counting. Confirmed patient temperature was 36. 5c, target temperature was 33c, water temperature was 8. 5c and flow rate was 2. 1lpm. Nurse stated that therapy started approximately 30 minutes ago but they were not sure that the device was running. System diagnostics showed water level was 3, outlet monitor temperature (t1) was 9. 2c, outlet control temperature (t2) was 9. 2, inlet temperature (t3) was 12. 0, chiller temperature (t4) was 5. 5, ip -7. 0psi, circulation pump command was 61 percentage, mixing pump command was 100 percentage, system hours were 8275, pump hours were 7924. Trend indicator showed one arrow up. Also confirmed protocol in device set to start timer at target. Mss explained that the 24 hours would start to count down once the patient was at 33c. Also advised that the device appeared to be working appropriately. Patient was likely generating heat, and therapy had not been in place long enough for temperature to be at target. Mss discussed trend indicator, non-pharmacological interventions such as bair hugger to help with heat generation, also discussed with nurse to look at hospital protocol regarding options for pharmacological interventions based on patients bsas and temperature. The nurse stated that they was not very sedated and they could feel micro shivering in the mandible. Per follow up via phone on 19jan2022, the nurse stated that the therapy was completed with no further issues and the arctic sun did not need to go to biomed.
