Event Description
It was reported that nurse had a patient cooling on arctic sun device around 1am on (b)(6) 2022.

Mss walked the nurse through draining 500 mls of water from the right drain port. Nurse stated that the water did not initially drain so they reversed the fill tubing, fine sediment initially came out and then the water cleared and started to flow out. At around 11pm, it was further reported that the hypothermia patient was cooling on arctic sun device with 1 hour left before rewarming began. Nurse reported that the device had been giving alert 113 (reduced water temp control) again this evening. Last night device was giving same alarm and 500 mls of water was drained.
