Event Description
It was reported that a normothermia patient started therapy at 41c, current patient temperature was 40. 1c on the arctic sun device. The physician changed settings from target temperature 37c to 34c. Nurse wanted to confirm the device was working correctly. The water temperature was 5. 7c, flow rate was 2. 0 lpm. The patient was sedated, but they were about to give paralytics and nurse denied shivering, microshivering or seizures and patient was septic. The trend showed 3 bars trending upward and rewarm rate set to maximum. There were size large pads, but only 3 pads were connected. The patient had line in that was going to be removed and then 4th pad would be added. Mss advised nurse to go ahead and attach pad to device by lay it aside if it could not be placed on the patient yet. There was no exposed abdomen. The flow rate increased to 2. 8lpm. The device appeared to be responding to the patient temperature appropriately. In addition of the 4th pad adds surface area coverage and should assist with temperature management. They might receive low water temperature exposure alerts if water temperature continued to stay so low. Mss explained nurse this alert was a safety alert and encourages diligent skin checks according to hospital protocol. Per follow up information received via phone on (b)(6) 2022, nurse stated that the device continued to work correctly, the 4th pad mentioned in the call was connected and patient continued therapy. There are no known reported injuries.
