Measurement of gaseous microemboli in the prime before the initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass.


INTRODUCTION The use of cardiopulmonary bypass is associated with a risk of neurocognitive deficit caused by gaseous microemboli. Flushing the empty bypass circuit with carbon dioxide, which is more soluble than air, may reduce the amount of gaseous microemboli in the priming solution before the initiating of cardiopulmonary bypass. METHOD We measured the… (More)
