PURPOSE To assess and compare the effects of normothermic and mild hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on hepatosplanchnic oxygenation. METHODS We studied 14 patients scheduled for elective coronary artery bypass graft surgery who underwent normothermic (>35 degrees C; group I, n=7) or mild hypothermic (32 degrees C; group II, n=7) CPB. After induction of anesthesia, a hepatic venous catheter was inserted into the right hepatic vein to monitor hepatic venous oxygen saturation (ShvO(2… CONTINUE READING
