Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device would continuously revert to the normothermia screen when trying to select hypothermia. The nurse noted that the water was warm, but the patient's temperature was not rising with therapy. The patient was admitted to the micu on (b)(6) 2019 post cardiac arrest. The patient was an (b)(6) female with a weight of (b)(6) and a history of interstitial lung disease and stage iv chronic copd with home oxygen. After therapy was initiated, the patient's temperature was 34. 5c and the water temperature was 37c. The flow rate was 2. 7lpm and the high water limit was 42c. The device would continuously revert to the normothermia screen when trying to select hypothermia. Nurse pam called ms&s for assistance with software issues and reaching target temperature. Ms&s recommended she cover the patient's hands, feet, and add an additional blanket for warmth. Ms&s advised that medications and patient factors can cause a patient to have difficulty rewarming. Nurse pam reported that the patient was receiving vasopressors, in addition to fentanyl and propofol which were part of the hospital's ttm protocol to prevent shivering. A follow-up call was placed the next day. Therapy had been changed from normothermia to hypothermia and 10 additional hours of cooling had been added. The complainant noted that the target temperature had been lowered to 35c to help the patient reach the target temperature more quickly. Therapy was completed on (b)(6) 2019. A call was received on 18 sept 2019, where additional information was provided that the patient expired on (b)(6) 2019 after therapy was completed on (b)(6) 2019. The nurse stated that the cause of death was due to the patient¿s condition and was not device related. The cause of death was anoxic brain injury due to cardiac arrest.
