Event Description
Information was received from a consumer regarding a patient receiving 2500 mcg/ml of fentanyl at 679. 1 mcg/day and 250 mcg/ml of baclofent at 67. 91 mcg/day via an implantable for non-malignant pain. It was reported the patient had been having episodes where he felt he was in withdrawal. The issue began about a week ago, relative to (b)(6) 2019. The patient recently had been working out and doing physical therapy. The patient also had a recent hip surgery and had been icing his right hip, right over the pump as well. The patient had been laying on an ice pack and the patient reported starting about an hour after doing the icing he starts having symptoms of: sweating, stomach hurting, "can't stop moving my body," and feeling the need to use the restroom frequently, but then not being able to do so. The patient stated this happened for a period of about 11 hours. The patient stated then it would resolve and they would feel okay. The patient's pump was interrogated and no issues were found. No alarms have been heard. Temperature considerations were reviewed with the patient. The patient stated they planned to discontinue the use of the icing and see if the problem no longer occurs. Additional information was received from the manufacturing representative (rep) on 2019-oct-23. The pump logs did not have any anomalies. The rep stated the patient vaguely explained to them that sometime in the past they had expected to get back 2 ml however the healthcare provider pulled back maybe around 10 ml from the pump. The rep stated they will be looking at the catheter next and will follow-up with the healthcare provider. No further complications were reported or anticipated.
