Clinically, hemodilution may be induced under various circumstances such as intraoperatively during cariopulmonary bypass (1) or therapeutically (2,3). However, aside from its clear-cut efficacy in polycythemic patients (3) and in other pathologic circumstances (2), there is some doubt as to whether tissue oxygenation is improved by hemodilution to subnormal hematocrits (4). With regard to oxygen delivery to the myocardium, Lundsgaard-Hansen (4) concluded that hemodilution should not exceed the… CONTINUE READING
