Event Description
It was reported that the arcticsun device was displaying an alert 113 (reduced water temperature control) during therapy. The target temperature was 33c, the patient's temperature was 37c, the water temperature was 7. 5c, the flow rate was 2. 4l/min, the trend was neutral, and the mixing pump command was 100%. The nurse stated that the patient was sedated, but not paralyzed. There were no signs of shivering or seizing, but the nurse could not determine if the jaw felt relaxed. Per troubleshooting, the nurse was advised to leave the patient on the device and to add a universal pad to the exposed abdomen. Causes of heat generation and counter warming were also discussed. The nurse was called back two hours later. A universal pad and a blanket had been added, and the patient was trending down with a temperature of 36. 4c. The water was 7. 3c, but another alert 113 was displayed. Per call back on 13nov2019, the device also received an alert 116 ( patient temperature 1 change not detected). The device was responding appropriately and ms&s suggested diligent skin checks.
