Bubble and membrane oxygenators (2 types of each) were compared in a randomized study of 96 patients undergoing coronary bypass grafting. Cardiac performance, assessed from postoperative need of inotropic support, was significantly better in the membrane oxygenator group. After perfusion lasting more than 2 hours, respiratory function, measured as alveolar-arterial oxygen pressure gradient, was less compromised in that group and renal function, quantified as postoperative rise of serum… CONTINUE READING
