Phagocytes from 12 patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) were studied sequentially with the quantitative nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT) test. Leukocytes were obtained 1 day before the operation, after anesthesia but prior to starling CPB, during CPB, and from 1 to 6 days after surgery. A transient decrease in NBT reduction was found during CPB, but there was a rapid return to normal after discontinuance of CPB. This effect was not attributed to defective leukocytes or toxic agents… Expand
