Event Description
Pt post emergent cabg. As the staff removed the drapes upon surgery completion, they found that his rt arm was discolored and swollen. The blood pressure cuff was removed and indentations were noted. The limb was elevate and an ultrasound was done which was negative. It was suspected that the air in the cuff never fully released. The cuff was only used in the very beginning of the case, before the arterial line was placed. The pt's arms were padded and tucked to the side. Staff questioned if the tucking of the arm caused a kink in the bp cuff tubing. A phillips monitor was hooked up to the bp cuff and was used in the manual mode. There was no error message, alarm or anything from the phillips module indicating a problem. The pt had a wrist drop (radial nerve injury) and arm pain post-op. A ct of the head was negative. Occupational therapy was ordered. The pain and function improved somewhat over the hospitalization, but some neuro deficits were still present on discharge on (b)(6) 2016. Pt discharged on neurontin. The biomed department tested the philips monitor and could not replicate any problem. There was also no issue found with the welch allen trimline reusable blood pressure cuff. (adult).
