Abstract

The effect of direct cardiac massage on peripheral blood erythrocytes is examined. A significant increase in the count of transitory reversible forms of erythrocytes is observed after 1 h of direct cardiac massage without no significant changes in the hemoglobin content, hematocrit, and erythrocyte and reticulocyte counts. It is concluded that direct cardiac massage produces less severe damage to erythrocytes than other means of assisted circulation.
