Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device was shutting down during use. The biomed powered it on and had allowed the device to run but the biomed could not see the device shutting down. The device would be sent in for investigation. Per follow up information received on 27-aug-2021, the biomed stated that they were unsure if the therapy was completed with the arctic sun device and was unsure of the exact issue. The arctic sun device was being sent to the depot for evaluation. As per the sample evaluation results received on 16-may-2022, low flow alarms during assessment testing occurred. Pressure readings were not steady and fluctuating between 0. 1psi and -11. 5psi while in manual normothermia mode using a test loop. This was caused by a failing circulation pump. The double bend tube from the tank to the manifold and the l tube from the chiller outlet to the chiller tank had expanded and deformed. The hot and neutral connections between the power inlet module and the main voltage circuit card showed signs of electrical overstress. Mixing pump motor had a cracked pump mounting thread. The tank seals were deformed and lifted from the tank. The patient temperature output (pto) was not functioning during acats (automated calibration and test system) calibration testing unit (ctu) testing.
