Previous studies have demonstrated a persistent rise in serum cortisol concentrations after cardiac surgery. To further investigate this finding and to evaluate the effect of hemodilution that occurs with the onset of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), concentrations of cortisol-binding globulin (CBG), total and unbound cortisol, and packed cell volume (PCV) were studied in 28 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. All patients received a standardized general anesthetic using a… CONTINUE READING
