Event Description
It was reported that the flow rate was 0 l/min and the device stopped once the pads were reconnected, when the patient returned from ct. The device read alert 01 (patient line opened). There was four pads in place with good coverage, the target temperature was 37c and the patients temperature 37c. With the pads attached the flow rate was 0 l/min, the inlet pressure was -0. 4 psi, and the circulation pump command was running at 100%. The pads and fluid delivery line were examined for damages and none were noted. The pads were disconnected and reconnected, holding only the blue foam tubing. Therapy was restarted and the flow rate was still sub-optimal at 1 l/min and then dropped to 0 l/min. The fluid delivery line (fdl) was disconnected and the nurse stated there was strong suction. The fdl was attached and the flow remained at 0 l/min. The pads were disconnected and the nurse noted that the left chest pad appeared to be broken with a ragged edge on the clear connectors. The nurse stated that the patient required therapy for a longer period of time and would just exchange all the pads. Ms&s called nurse back an hour later and it was noted that only two pads were exchanged and the flow was still 0 l/min. It was recommended that the other two pads be exchanged. Ms&s followed up again and the nurse connected a new set of pads and the flow rate was still 0 l/min. It was recommended the device was exchanged. Per additional information received, the patient was in normothermia therapy and the patient was maintaining target temperature.
