Event Description
It was reported that a patient was insufficiently heating while receiving therapy on an arctic sun device. The patient¿s temperature was 33. 8c and the target was 37c. The water temperature was 39. 8c and the flow rate was 2. 1l/min. The rewarm tab read from 34. 8c, at a rate of 0. 50c/hour to 37c. Per troubleshooting with ms&s, the nurse added a universal pad and warm blankets. The nurse also turned on the vent warmer and increased the room temperature. A few hours passed and the patient still did not meet the rewarm target. The patient¿s temperature was then 34. 4c and the water temperature was 42c. During a follow up call on (b)(6) 2019, the assistant nurse manager, (b)(6), stated the patient was admitted to the icu for respiratory distress and was also receiving continuous renal replacement therapy (crrt). The patient completed therapy on (b)(6) 2019 and was later placed on comfort care measures. Nurse (b)(6) stated the patient expire on (b)(6) 2019 and the cause of death was due to anoxic brain injury related to respiratory distress and was not device related.
