Use of cardioplegia delivery equipment for rapid warm volume replacement after cardiopulmonary bypass.
Often, after cardiopulmonary bypass involving aortic dissection, aortic root replacements, or valve conduits, rapid volume replacement with blood products is essential to obtain hemostasis and patient survival. We describe a method of using cardiopulmonary bypass equipment for rapid warm volume replacement and infusion of remaining residual volume in the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit after a cardiac operation.
