  author={Jeffrey B. Riley and B. A. Winn and M. B. Hurdle},
  journal={The journal of extra-corporeal technology},
___________ _ The second and more complete version of a computer simulation of CPB is presented. Version Two simulates oxygen transfer, carbon dioxide transfer, and heat transfer. BASIC computer statements were created to mimic the clinical function of the hollow fiber membrane oxygenator. The oxygenator function curves were created from over 400 clinical oxygenation and carbon dioxide measurements from four institutions. Heat transfer and normal physiological relationships were simultated in… 
"Orpheus" cardiopulmonary bypass simulation system.
A high-fidelity perfusion simulation system intended for use in the training and continuing education of perfusionists, the development of crisis management protocols, the certification and accreditation of perfusionsists and the evaluation of new perfusion equipment and/or techniques is described.
Virtual Extracorporeal Circulation Process
The possibility of modifying the control parameters of the virtual devices of the ECC in run-time mode offers an interaction mode between the operator and the virtual environment, and a drug model which allows the simulation of the effect of vasodilator and diuretic drugs is implemented.
Patient Safety in the Cardiac Operating Room: Human Factors and Teamwork A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
Refined techniques, advanced technologies, and enhanced coordination of care have led to significant improvements in cardiac surgery outcomes, however, more than 10 years after the Institute of Medicine report, there is still no clear trend in mortality and morbidity for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Perfusion safety: new initiatives and enduring principles
Use of previously established resources such as written protocols, checklists, safety devices, and enhanced communication skills has persisted to the present in promoting perfusion safety and has reduced current complication rates to negligible levels.
