In this study, we investigated the differences between pulsatile cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) procedure and nonpulsatile CPB procedure in terms of their effects on hemolysis and deformability of red blood cells (RBCs) under various shear stress conditions. In order to research the effects on hemolysis and deformability, four parameters--free hemoglobin(More)
BACKGROUND Extracorporeal circulation (ECC) can induce alterations in blood viscoelasticity and cause red blood cell (RBC) aggregation. In this study, the authors evaluated the effects of pump flow pulsatility on blood viscoelasticity and RBC aggregation. METHODS Mongrel dogs were randomly assigned to two groups: a nonpulsatile pump group (n=6) or a(More)
