Event Description
It was reported that the arctic sun device was getting low flow , so the nurse filled the reservoir without emptying the pads. The flow rate was 0. 1l/min. Per troubleshooting with ms&s, the nurse was advised that filling the reservoir was not proper troubleshooting for flow. The nurse emptied some water from the drain port to prevent a overfill scenario, but a piece came out of the drain port and the water would not stop draining. Ms&s recommended sending the unit to biomed for evaluation. Biomed evaluated the unit and stated the water level was showing no bars lit up, and the reservoir level was zero. Per troubleshooting with ms&s, a gallon of sterile water was obtained, and the biomed was guided through attempting to fill the reservoir via the fill tube. He stated that the device was not pulling in the water. The fluid delivery line was removed and with a thumb placed over the left port, the biomed reported very little suction. The fluid delivery line was replaced, and he tried again to fill the device but was unsuccessful. Per additional information received via voice message on 17 dec 2019 from biomed, the device flow issue and filling issue was caused by the circulation pump.
