Although some controversy persists regarding the adequate level of blood pressure during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), it is generally considered that mean arterial blood pressure should remain between 60 and 80 mmHg. Significant pressure rises above 100 mmHg in the presence of predicted flows result from increased systemic vascular resistance (SVR). Many factors may contribute to this increase in SVR [1], such as elevated level of plasma catecholamines [2, 3, 4], antidiuretic hormone [5, 6], thromboxane [7] and the activation of the renin angiotensin system [8].
