Detection and classification of gaseous microemboli during pulsatile and nonpulsatile perfusion in a simulated neonatal CPB model.

Abstract

We compared the effects of perfusion modes (pulsatile vs. nonpulsatile) on gaseous microemboli delivery using the Emboli Detection and Classification (EDAC) Quantifier at postpump, postoxygenator, and postarterial filter sites in a simulated pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) model. The mock loop was subjected to five different pump flow rates of equal… (More)
