Coronary artery bypass grafting: an off-pump versus on-pump review.
TLDR
Comparisons by number of grafts performed revealed that only the single-grafted OPCAB patients had statistically fewer postoperative complications, reduced chest drainage, and a shorter intensive care stay, suggesting that O PCAB is associated with a reduction in mortality and morbidity, particularly within the higher-risk patients.

Membrane oxygenator exhaust capnography for continuously estimating arterial carbon dioxide tension during cardiopulmonary bypass.
TLDR
The results suggest that oxygenator exhaust capnography may be a simple and inexpensive adjunct to the bench blood gas analyzer in continuously estimating PaCO2 of a clinically useful degree of accuracy during CPB. Expand
Intra-operative autologous blood management.
TLDR
It is the authors' observation that the success of an intra-operation blood management program is twofold, early identification of patients and a multi-team approach of Surgeon, Haematologist, Transfusion services, Anaesthetist and Perfusionist, which offers far greater depth for management of intra-operative blood conservation and transfusion practice.

Is the air handling capability of the quadrox D pump dependent within an ECMO circuit? An in vitro study.
TLDR
It is confirmed that a greater total count and volume of GME are detected distal to the Quadrox D when used in conjunction with a Rotaflow centrifugal pump. Expand
Successful 2,000-Kilometer International Transfer of an Infant Receiving Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Severe Respiratory Failure.
TLDR
The case of a 10-month old boy with necrotizing staphylococcal pneumonia complicated by a bronchopleural fistula, who was successfully retrieved and transported while receiving ECMO to the authors' unit in Sydney, Australia, from a referring hospital 2,000 kilometers away in the Pacific Islands.
