OBJECTIVE Systemic cooling for cardiopulmonary bypass is widely used to attenuate the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and organ injury in children after open surgery. We compared the effects of moderate (24 °C) and mild (34 °C) hypothermia during bypass on markers of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and organ injury, and on clinical outcome after corrective surgery for congenital heart disease. METHODS Sixty-six children (mean age, 6.8 ± 5.7 months; mean weight, 6.2 ± 2.3… CONTINUE READING
