During massive autotransfusion in the dog, the different anticoagulation processes have an important influence on heart work and performance. This is especially marked with citrate, depending on the amount and the transfusion rate. In spite of normovolemia both parameters show a transient decrease up to 40% - 50% with ACD and up to 60% - 70% with CPD. These different reactions may be due to the corresponding composition of each stabilizer. The effect is abolished by simultaneous use of citrate… Expand

Effects of citrated whole blood transfusion in response to hemorrhage.
Transfusion with citrated whole blood may significantly alter calcium concentration, negatively affecting myocardial and vascular function in dogs, and this results may exacerbate cardiovascular and metabolic insults attributable to hemorrhage. Expand
