Event Description
It was reported that a patient was insufficiently warming while receiving therapy on the arctic sun device, sn# (b)(4), at 1758 on (b)(6) 2019. The (b)(6) year old female was placed on the arctic sun device following a cardiac arrest with suspected anoxic brain injury. During the rewarming phase, the patients¿ temperature was 31. 7c with a target temperature of 36. 5c. The water temperature was between 36c-40c, the flow rate was 1. 2l/min with five pads, and good coverage was reported. The nurse reported no alarms or alerts and the patient had stable vital signs. Through troubleshooting with the ms&s helpline, it was confirmed that there was an alert 51 (patient temperature 1 below control range, alert 115 (prolonged warm water exposure), and alert 02 (low flow). The nurse advised ms&s that the device would be switched out. During a follow-up phone call on 28may1019, the nurse reported the patient experienced a second cardiac arrest and expired on (b)(6) 2019 at 0220 on the same device. The nurse stated the cause of death was cardiac arrest and not device related. The nurse also stated the neurological condition of the patient prevented her core temperature from rewarming. The device was sent to biomed for evaluation. The patient had a history of drug abuse and was recently diagnosed with cancer and had not started any cancer treatment. She received vasopressors intermittently during her hospitalization.
