BACKGROUND For infant cardiac surgery, recent studies suggest improved neurological outcome after deep hypothermic circulatory arrest when pH-stat cardiopulmonary bypass is used compared with alpha-stat cardiopulmonary bypass. The pH-stat method is hypothesized to protect the brain through improved cooling and/or rewarming. We examined brain cooling and rewarming during pH-stat and alpha-stat cardiopulmonary bypass in 12 newborn pigs. METHODS AND RESULTS Microthermistors were inserted into… CONTINUE READING
