Event Description
It was reported that the patient was not heating on the arctic sun device. The nurse reported the patient completed 24 hours of hypothermia on s/n (b)(4) and should now be rewarming to 37c at 0. 25c/hr. The patient's temperature stayed between 35c and 35. 5c. The control patient reads from 37c (in normothermia) at 0. 25c/hr. Patient's temperature was 35. 4c. Water's temperature was 22. 4c. Flow rate was 1. 9lpm. Heater command was 100%. Water level was 5. Pump hours were 588 and system hours 692. Ms&s had the nurse drain 500cc from the circulation tank and discussed how overfill can occur. The water was up to 34c by the end of the call. Flow rate was 2. 1lpm. Ms&s explained that flow above 1. 7lpm is acceptable and that the patient should now warm at 0. 25c/hr. Ms&s discussed how the water temperature adjusts automatically to attempt to keep patient at target and may always be warmer than the patient's temperature. Per follow up on 20jan2020 via phone, nurse (b)(6) stated she believed it was a nurse error. The 1st device was pulled out of the room and a 2nd device was used to complete therapy on the patient with no further issues. Per follow up on (b)(6) 2020 via phone, biomed (b)(6) stated she drained waster from the 1st device and kept it in service.
