Strategies for bloodless priming of cardiopulmonary bypass circuits in pediatric cardiac surgery

Duc Hoang Doan, Luong Tan Nguyen


Tóm tắt

Bloodless cardiopulmonary bypass in paediatric cardiac surgery in patients weighing more than 15 kg can be performed safely and effectively. Incorporating a low-prime volume oxygenator into a revised circuit reduced the need for blood transfusion and allowed us to achieve our desire flow rate of 2.6±0.21 L/min/m2 while maintaining a haematocrit ranging from 28% to 36%.
