The patient's temperature was 34. 6c, the target temperature was 34c, the water temperature was 30c, the flow rate was 2. 7l/min, and the trend indicator had one arrow pointing up. Per troubleshooting, temperature 1 was 30c, temperature 2 was 30c, temperature 4 was 4. 1c, the circulation pump was 78%, and the mixing pump command was 100%. The nurse was advised to send the device to the biomed for investigation of the mixing pump. The device was replaced with another unit. The nurse was guided through emptying, disconnecting the pads, and switching to the new device to resume therapy. It was later reported on (b)(6) 2018 from nurse (b)(6), the patient continued therapy on a loaner device.
