Event Description
It was reported that there was suboptimal flow and the water temperature was fluctuating. The nurse reported that the patient was (b)(6) year old and post cardiac arrest post seizure. The patient's temperature was in the 38c range, the target temperature was 36c, and the water temperature was 29c. She stated she was seeing many air bubbles in the line. Per troubleshooting, it was explained that if the device was not alarming air bubbles, then it was not a concern. The nurse stated she was seeing the water temperature fluctuate. During the call the nurse reported that there was an alarm for suboptimal flow. The flow rate was 1. 5 l/min. She was advised to stop therapy, empty the pads, disconnect and reconnect the pads using the proper technique. The flow rate was in the 3 l/min range. The nurse checked the patient's temperature with an alternate source and she noted that it correlated. It was explained that the flow rate was optimal, the temperatures correlated and the water temperature was decreasing in order to bring down the patients temperature. Per additional information, therapy was stopped and the patient was taken off of the device. Per additional information, the nurse stated that therapy was stopped and the patient was taken off of the device because the patient was not cooling. She said the patient's temperature rose to 102f, so they ended up packing the patient with ice and wrapped them in a cooling blanket.
