To determine the effect of operations with cardiopulmonary bypass on the immunologic function of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in infants, we studied polymorphonuclear leukocyte function and immunologic profile in 16 infants undergoing repair of congenital heart lesions. An oxygen/air/high-dose fentanyl anesthetic was used for all patients. Absolute neutrophil count increased significantly (p less than 0.05) after bypass and remained increased 48 hours afterward. Chemotaxis, random migration of… CONTINUE READING
