Topical hemostatic therapy in surgery: bridging the knowledge and practice gap.
In vitro comparison of the blood handling by the constrained vortex and twin roller blood pumps
This investigation compared the twin roller pump (CRP)a, the Bio-Medicus (BCP)b and the Sarns (SCP)c vortex pumps in terms of hemolysis, platelet factor IV release, and fibrinogen destruction in a 48 hour, in vitro test model of a cardiac assist circuit.
In vitro evaluation of the air separation ability of four cardiovascular manufacturer extracorporeal circuit designs.
Air-handling differences between the ECCs from the four different manufacturers provide an opportunity for clinicians to potentially minimize the risks of arterial air embolization and its associated deleterious neurologic effects, while allowing clinicians to make better-informed consumer decisions.
Novoseven use in a non-cardiac pediatric ECMO patient with uncontrolled bleeding.
The case of an infant on veno-arterial ECMO for respiratory syncytial virus with severe bleeding and the use of recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) is reported, which should not be a first-line treatment until continued studies allow for approved use in this patient population.
In vitro drug adsorption and plasma free hemoglobin levels associated with hollow fiber oxygenators in the extracorporeal life support (ECLS) circuit.
In this in vitro study, fentanyl in any combination or alone was associated with increased PFH levels and the type of oxygenator did not seem to significantly affect PFH.

Generally, the smaller the pore rating, the higher the GME separation ability rank, except for the leuko-reduction filter, which performed more effectively than other large pore filters.
Update on Safety Equipment for Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) Circuits
The purpose of this review is to compare and contrast the spectrum of minimally equipped ECLS circuits to circuits with maximum flexibility and safety device protection.
Regional perfusion during venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: a case report and educational modules on the concept of dual circulations.
This patient with cardiogenic shock demonstrated regional respiratory alkalosis when blood was sampled from the right radial arterial line, and graphics representing the concept of "dual circulations" were created and distributed to facilitate the education of ECMO specialists at this institution.
In vitro measurement of the accuracy of a new patient side blood gas, pH, hematocrit and electrolyte monitor
An In Vitro human blood circuit was brought to equilibrium with five analyzed gases and at varied electrolyte concentrations to determine the accuracy of the GEM-6 analyzer with respect to current market standard analyzers.
