Event Description
It was reported that the patient experienced an increase in intracranial pressure that may have been related to the device. Therapy was initiated on (b)(6) 2018. On the same day that therapy was initiated, the patient experienced shivering. Counter-warming measures and medications were administered to combat the shivering. The medication was changed to a propofol and fentanyl drip. The patient experienced low blood pressure and was administered vasopressors. On (b)(6) 2018, the water temperature of the device was below 25 c. The site performed a microbiological culture to assess for infection. Preliminary results of sputum culture indicated presence of gram-negative rods infection (gnrs). The patient was then treated with antibacterial zosyn for suspicious of pneumonia. On (b)(6) 2018, the patient's intracranial pressure was measured in the 20's (normal range is between 7 and 15 mmhg). The patient had been shivering. The patient was treated with an external ventricular device (evd) to relieve the pressure. The evd brought the patient's intracranial pressure down to 0 mmhg. The patient was also administered sedatives, propofol and fentanyl, for shivering. Therapy was completed on the original device.
