Event Description
It was reported that the hypothermia patient at 36 c was rewarming on arctic sun device for 3 hours and the nurse felt the device was not making water hot enough to warm the patient. The patient temperature was 34. 9 c, water temperature was 27 c, flow rate was 2. 8 l/min and there was good pad coverage. The patient came in with a temperature in the range of 34 c range and not under crrt (continuous renal replacement therapy). The device was in normothermia mode and the nurse had just changed the target from 36 c to 37 c and changed the rewarm rate to maximum. The water temperature was now up to 39 c. Mss discussed about the dangers of fast warming. Nurse decided it would be best to restart warming/therapy under hypothermia mode. Mss walked nurse through setting device to rewarm from 35 c at 0. 25 c/ hour to 36c , which was their protocol rewarm rate. Mss recommended nurse to not keep changing the settings but call first if needed any assistance. The device could make warm water and it was responding appropriately to the changes in the patient temperature.
