Event Description

It was initially reported that the pt has been experiencing chest pain and a feeling that the generator was moving since implant especially when taking in a breath. Pt had cardiac arrest twice in may and was in the icu at the time of the initial report. The generator was disabled and the pain was reported to have stopped. Add'l info was received from the physician's office that indicated that the pt was taken to the er after going into cardiac arrest where she was resituated and placed on a ventilator. When the pt was removed from the ventilator she would go back into cardiac arrest. It was indicated that the pt has been complaining of pain in the chest, which was described as both an irritation and supposed heart palpitations with vomiting. When the pt had a work up by the cardiologist there were no apparent issues. It is not clear to the physician if the events are in fact related to the device or psychosomatic. The pt is anorexic so it is unclear what effect that has had on the cardiac issues that pt has been experiencing. It is unk what the plan is or if interventions will be taken. The pt's mother wants vns removed. Good faith attempts for more info have been unsuccessful to date.
