Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). Neither the device involved nor the trend date has been received for evaluation. The investigation is ongoing at this time. A follow-up report will be filed when the investigation is complete.
 
Event Description
As reported by the user facility: customer reported that approximately 20 minutes after the start of therapy, the patient's blood pressure dropped and the patient became unresponsive. The low blood pressure alarm was activated. The patient's blood pressure was 67/45 and the nurse administered a bolus of iv fluid and started oxygen therapy. The patient's blood pressure increased to 112/75 and the patient still remained unresponsive; even after sternal rub. Ems was called to the facility. The patient was a dnr so cpr was not started. Ems took patient to hospital where he was pronounced dead. No autopsy was performed. No cause of death provided. Patient was a (b)(6) male with significant medical history. Patient had a massive stroke over a year ago. Patient was constantly under sedation at his nursing home residence; hence the nurse said he was "normally" unresponsive. Patient also typically had a low bp during therapy. The event occurred during therapy and the therapy was not completed. Customer stated machine is out of service until final report is provided. Customer does feel the blood pressure reading is higher than normal. A system check out has been completed by the clinic's biomed. Conductivity, temperature and uf have been verified and tested per the manufactures specifications. The machine passed all pressure tests and alarm tests. Dialysate culture result <10, endotoxin result <0. 2, lyte results all within davita limits.

Manufacturer Narrative
(b)(4). The analysis of the data record of the dialog+ machine shows an unobtrusive preparation phase. The data shows that there was a restart of the dialysis machine shortly after the patient connection. From the trend it is not comprehensible whether this was caused by a power failure or whether the operator switched the machine off and on again manually. After the machine had restarted again, it was in bypass mode until the conductivity of the dialysis fluid was re-established. Shortly thereafter, the arterial pressure increased from -170 mmhg to 40 mmhg. This pressure increase was obviously caused by the administration of the saline bolus described by the customer. About 11 minutes after therapy start, the patient's blood was reinfused and the therapy finished prematurely. During this short therapy the alarms "abpm: sys press. Is too low" (alarm code 9101) and "abpm: dia press. Is too low" (alarm code 9104) were triggered several times indicating the patient's low blood pressure. According to the information from the customer, the patient typically had low blood pressure. The analysis of the trend data showed that the dialog+ machine and the automatic blood pressure monitoring module (abpm) operated as intended. There was no malfunction. If additional pertinent information becomes available a follow-up report will be filed.
