Event Description
It was reported that the ventricular assist device (vad) exhibited frequent suction alarms. It was further reported that the cause was thought to be due to residual cardiac function or posture. Mean arterial pressure was managed at 80 mmhg or lower and the vad flow was sufficiently high despite high pulsatility. Of note, upon vad implant the patient had cardiac enlargement and the pump was fixated to the chest wall. The vad remains in use. No patient complications have been reported as a result of this event.
