Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) is part of our current protocol to decrease post-operative bleeding and homologous blood transfusions post cardiopulmonary bypass. Blood is drawn from our patients pre-bypass after obtaining the arterial line and administered back to the patient after separation from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and reversal of heparin with protamine. In our practice we noticed some variability in the impact of ANH on postoperative bleeding; with some patients appearing to show more hemostasis after separation from CPB than others. This is a prospective study to find out if there is an optimal time period that guarantees the largest amount of functioning platelets and what is the best practice for drawing and storing of ANH to guarantee the largest amount of functioning platelets.

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...
Impact of acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) using hydroxyethyl starch before initiating cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on whole blood viscoelastic profile after CPB has not been well est...
The purpose of this study is to learn the best method of assigning patients to receive "acute normovolemic hemodilution" during liver surgery.
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 t...
The concept of hemodilution after blood loss and crystalloid infusion is a surgical maxim that remains unproven in humans. We sought to quantify the effect of hemodilution after crystalloid administra...
Cardiac left ventricular assist device (LVAD) placement is a common therapy for heart failure. Non-cardiac surgical care of these patients can be complex given the need for anticoagulation, perioperat...
Compare the maximum concentration (Cmax), time to maximum concentration (Tmax), mean concentration, rate of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), time to ROSC, and odds of ROSC when epinephrine is...
The radial approach to cardiac procedures has become increasingly common. While previous studies have suggested a favorable risk profile, serious complications can occur. The purpose of this study was...
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
Surgical procedures performed using a computer that remotely controls surgical instruments attached to mechanical arms designed to perform the tasks of the surgeon.
Surgery performed on the heart.
A range of methods used to induce UNCONSCIOUSNESS; ANALGESIA; and MUSCLE RELAXATION during cardiac procedures.
Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
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...
