Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) elicits a well-described systemic inflammatory response that results in significant end organ dysfunction in a subset of high-risk patients (1–3). Contact of blood with the nonphysiologic surfaces of the bypass machine causes coagulopathy and bleeding (4), complement activation (5), neutrophil-mediated pulmonary injury (6), hemodilution, and capillary leak (7,8). In patients with left ventricular dysfunction, myocardial arrest can result in ischemia with temporary or permanent cardiac impairment.
