Hyperbilirubinaemia after cardiac surgery: the point of no return.

Summary of "Hyperbilirubinaemia after cardiac surgery: the point of no return."

The occurrence of hyperbilirubinaemia after heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass or post-operative heart failure is fairly common. We investigated the incidence, predictive value, and post-operative outcome of hyperbilirubinaemia after cardiac surgery in an effort to identify potential risk factors and significance on clinical outcome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.

Surgery performed on the heart.

The bestowing of tangible or intangible benefits, voluntarily and usually without expectation of anything in return. However, gift giving may be motivated by feelings of ALTRUISM or gratitude, by a sense of obligation, or by the hope of receiving something in return.

Solutions which, upon administration, will temporarily arrest cardiac activity. They are used in the performance of heart surgery.

A beta-2 agonist catecholamine that has cardiac stimulant action without evoking vasoconstriction or tachycardia. It is proposed as a cardiotonic after myocardial infarction or open heart surgery.
