Alterations in red cell metabolism during and following cardiac bypass surgery.

Abstract

Reduced concentrations of red cell organic phosphates and increased hemoglobin--oxygen affinity have been reported during and following cardiac bypass surgery. Some have related these changes to low concentrations of ATP and 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (DPG) in stored blood while others have related them to use of the pump oxygenator. There was a 10% decrease in… (More)
