    Is this a sentinel event?

    Heck no, you are fine. I worked a neuro med surgical floor (not nearly as critical as yours) and it was standard to receive an order to open up a csf line and allow up to 20-30 cc to drain into the sterile bag over 20 minutes. This was explained to me coming directly from a neurosurgeon. He did state that you don't want to do more than 30cc at a time, though. The body would have a tough time creating more csf to keep up at that point, and patient would probably experience a wicked headache. Hope that helps:)
