Event Description
It was reported that an arctic sun device, with sn (b)(4), was giving an alert 113 during therapy. An (b)(6) year old, male, post cardiac arrest, patient was started on arctic sun therapy on (b)(6) 2018 around 1:00 a. M. The patient¿s temperature was 36c, the target temperature was 33c, and the water temperature was 31c. The nurse called the ms&s helpline on (b)(6) 2018 at 4:22 a. M. To assist with troubleshooting. Ms&s advised that the device be sent to the facility¿s biomed labeled alert 113 with a broken cooler. It was later reported during a follow up call on (b)(6) 2018, the patient was placed on a second arctic sun device with sn (b)(4) and therapy continued with no further issues. The patient was able to reach their target temperature while on the second device on (b)(6) 2018 at 5:00 a. M. The first device with sn (b)(4) was sent to the facility¿s biomed for evaluation. On (b)(6) 2018 at 9:00 a. M. , the family decided to withdraw care, including the device, and place the patient in a dnr status. The patient later expired at 9:47 a. M. On (b)(6) 2018. The nurse reported that the patient expired unrelated to the device and that the cause of death was cardiac related as the patient had a history of cardiac amyloidosis. It was later reported by the nurse, that the patient was on multiple vasopressors including epinephrine, levophed, and vasopressin. The biomed stated that after she finished calibrating the device, she received an error 80. The device was not returned to service and remained in biomed.
