Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device alerted an alert 113 (reduced water temperature control) while cooling a patient in hypothermia therapy. The patient temperature was 36. 5c with a target of 36c. Water temperature was 23. 8c and flow rate was 1. 4l/min with two small universal pads in place. The overnight nurse had stated that there were flow issues, but they seemed to have resolved. Per troubleshooting with ms&s, therapy was stopped and device put in manual control at 6c. System hours was at 1047. 9 and pump hours was at 934. 5. T1 was 24c, t2 was 23. 9c, t4 was 3. 5c, and the mixing pump was at 100%. The device was swapped and sent to biomed for evaluation. Per follow up with nurse (b)(6) via phone on (b)(6) 2018, the flow rate was still indicating low on the second device (sn (b)(4)), but the patient was able to complete therapy with no further issues or alerts.
