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 an alert during therapy. The baby's temperature was at 33. 1c with a target of 33. 5c. The water temperature was 31c, and the flow rate with a neonatal pad was 0. 5(l/min). The event log showed an alert 113 (reduced water temperature control), and the water level was showing three bars. The nurse disconnected and reconnected the pad using the proper technique, but the flow rate remained at 0. 5l/min. The device was swapped out and sent to biomed. The flow rate on the second device fluctuated from 0. 2-1. 5l/min, so the nurse was advised to swap the pad. After about an hour, the patient's temperature had increased to 33. 3c. Per follow up with nurse via phone on 13dec2019, the patient continued therapy on the second device with the second pad, with no further issues.
