Event Description
It was reported that the patient was in normothermia mode in the arctic sun device.

Nurse stated that the patient temperature was 37. 6c, target temperature was 37c, water temperature was 5c when nurse noted, and flow rate was 2. 9lpm and patient weighs about 121kg. Patient had a set of large pads in place, no universal pad over the belly of the patient.
