Hemodilution was introduced initially as a blood conservation technique to reduce allogeneic blood transfusion in patients undergoing surgical procedures. Although the technique has been approved by the National Institute of Health consensus panel, limits of hemodilution under anesthetic conditions have not been established as they have in animal models.

We investigated the coagulation changes that might occur in acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) blood over several hours during cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass.
The DETermination of the role of Oxygen in suspected Acute Myocardial Infarction (DETO2X-AMI) trial did not find any benefit of oxygen therapy compared to ambient air in normoxemic patients with suspe...
Left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure predicts short- and long-term mortality and correlates with infarct size after ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction. Ventricular load refers to...
Return to work is an important indicator of recovery after acute myocardial infarction. Little is known, however, about the rate of returning to work within the year after an acute myocardial infarcti...
The relationship between guideline adherence and outcomes in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been widely investigated considering the emergency, acute, post-acute phases separately...
Efficacy and safety assessment of of Acute Normovolemic Hemodilution and its influence on blood product usage, hemostatic markers, and amount of chest tube drainage at 24 hours post CABG s...
The application of acute Normovolemic Hemodilution in cardiac surgery can effectively reduce perioperative blood transfusion, reduce postoperative complications and mortality, and is a low...
The purpose of this study is to learn the best method of assigning patients to receive "acute normovolemic hemodilution" during liver surgery.
Several studies have highlighted the cardioprotective effects of acute normovolemic hemodilution during cardiac surgery. The aim of our study is to show that an increase in endogenous eryt...
The investigators primary objective is to determine if acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) for pediatric cardiac surgical patients decreases the volume of blood products transfused durin...
An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A diverse group of agents, with unique chemical structures and biochemical requirements, which generate NITRIC OXIDE. These compounds have been used in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and the management of acute myocardial infarction, acute and chronic congestive heart failure, and surgical control of blood pressure. (Adv Pharmacol 1995;34:361-81)
A phenylethylamine derivative that acts as a calcium antagonist showing hemodynamic effects in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
