Event Description
It was reported that there was a device sensing issue on the arctic sun device. Hypothermia patient was cooling on the device and the nurse reported that the device was displaying alert 02. Patient temperature was 36. 7c, water temperature was 6c and flow rate was 1. 6l/min. There was good pad coverage and the target temperature was 36c. With pads attached flow rate was 1. 6l/min, inlet pressure was -7psi and circulation pump was at 48%. Ms&s walked her through disconnecting the pads, straightening out the tubing and reconnecting the pads. Flow rate varied from 1. 4 to 1. 6l/min and back down. The nurse stated she could see large air bubbles in the clear connectors. The patient was shivering and they administered medications. Counter warming was in place. Ms&s advised them to change the pads if the flow rate continued to drop and the patients temperature was not dropping after shivering was controlled. Per follow via phone on (b)(6) 2020, the nurse stated the patient was administered fentanyl, buspar and precedex because of the shivering per hospital protocol. The patient was able to complete therapy on the same device and pads with no further issues and the device would be kept in service.
