About this book


Coronary artery bypass surgery is one of the most common operations in the world today, with nearly one million procedures performed annually. In the vast majority of cases, extracorporeal circulation is an integral part of coronary artery bypass surgery. CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS: PRINCIPLES AND TECHNIQUES OF EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCULATION is a definitive, comprehensive text on the technological developments and clinical applications of this critical subject matter. Written for the entire heart surgery team, this volume covers the physiology of cardiopulmonary bypass; mechanics and components of the heart-lung machine; conduct of cardiopulmonary bypass in cardiac surgery; non-cardiac applications of cardiopulmonary bypass; mechanical assistance of the failing heart and lung; and special considerations such as blood conservation in cardiac surgery, religions objections to blood transfusions, medical-legal aspects and cardiopulmonary bypass, and warm blood cardioplegia and normothermic cardiopulmonary bypass.
