A cardiopulmonary bypass machine (CPB) malfunctioned during a patient’s heart bypass surgery, requiring the machine to be turned off for it to be repaired. During the time the machine was turned off, the patient was not being supplied with oxygenated blood. He suffered a stroke that resulted in his death several days later.
