Event Description
It was reported that a normothermia patient was on the device with a 37c target temperature but there was no graph on the screen. The complainant said there was only a screen that showed controlling patient at 37c. She was told that the device had not been programmed yet. Per troubleshooting, ms&s stated that the graph area was blank after receiving a screen shot. The manual control box was in the upper right corner of the screen. The complainant rebooted the device. There was a hypothermia and normothermia choice on the patient therapy selection screen, however, when she chose normothemia, the device went to the screen saver screen. The screen saver screen showed the water temperature and patient temperature. There was no change after rebooting the device. The complainant was advised to switch the patient to a second device and send this device to the biomed. Ms&s called back approximately one hour later and confirmed the patient was continuing therapy successfully on the second device. Per additional information from biomed (b)(6) on (b)(6) 2018, the sales rep reinstalled the software and the device functioned normally. The device has been sent back into service.
