Manufacturer Narrative
The investigation is still in progress. Once the investigation is complete a supplemental report will be filed. The device was not returned.
Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device was getting low flow. The nurse stated they did not have a rectal probe, so they were using a foley. The connector for the foley probe was on the as2000, so they were using that instead. Per troubleshooting with ms&s, the nurse was advised that he could use the same cable in the as5000. He stated he would swap the device to the as5000. After swapping the device, the flow rate was 1. 3l/min. The nurse was then instructed to disconnect and reconnect the pads using the proper technique. There was no improvement in flow. The nurse took off the fluid delivery line and ran diagnostics. The flow rate was optimal, inlet pressure was in the -8psi range , and the circulation pump command was in the 60% range. The pads were reconnected one by one and the flow rate was optimal. Hypothermia therapy was restarted, and the flow rate settled at 2. 8l/min.
