Use of nitrogen in ventilation of artificial blood oxygenators: a potential hazard
Perfusionists have adapted nitrogen gas sources to air/oxygen mixers-in most cases, simply because the nitrogen gas source pre-existed in the OR suite and was more convenient than obtaining a
In vitro comparison of cavoatrial (dual stage) cannulae for use during cardiopulmonary bypass
TLDR
The mechanism for CPB venous collapse and flutter, its treatment, and the importance of monitoring myocardial temperature, as well as assuring great vein and cardiac decompression during cavoatrial cannulation and aortic cross clamping are outlined.
A computer simulation of cardiopulmonary bypass: version two
TLDR
The computer simulation of bypass has proven to be a cost and time saving adjunct to perfusion education curricula and a cost effective means of providing vital information for medical, allied health, and industrial training and product design.
Automation of cardiopulmonary bypass data collection
TLDR
Intraoperative application of computer technology can increase the accuracy, frequency, and efficiency of the data collection process and has become a useful ally to the surgical team.
A quality assurance program for perfusion
TLDR
The current medical malpractice crisis has forced hospitals to develop risk management departments, the responsibilities of which are to predict patient injury, avoid liability exposure, and minimize malpractice claims.
A comparison of a heparin coated and a non-coated ECC arterial line blood filter
TLDR
The AFS 40 is a better bubble trap under normal ECC blood flow conditions and the AF 1040C appear to be clinically equivalent, and conduct of perfusion has been demonstrated to affect the release of GME from the ECC.
A computer monitored, recirculating, equilibrium test circuit for artificial blood oxygenator gas and heat transfer characterization
An In Vitro test circuit that features continuous direct monitoring of blood gases, pH, temperature, hemoglobin 0 2 saturation, blood flow, gas flow and pressure is presented. Previous test circuit
