We investigated a possible relationship between pre-operative platelet count and reduced sensitivity to heparin in 87 patients undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Sensitivity to heparin was determined by measuring the slope of the heparin dose response (HDR) before surgery. Pre-operative platelet counts were measured as part of(More)
Introduction: None of the currently available pulmonary artery (PA) catheters allows instantaneous and continuous measurement of pulmonary blood flow. At best, the socalled continuous cardiac output (CO) catheters (and associated software) indicate continuously an averaged value of CO measured over several minutes. A new catheter has been introduced(More)
