Summary and Info
Cardiopulmonary Bypass provides a practical overview of all aspects of clinical perfusion, giving core knowledge and essential background information for those early in their clinical training as well as more specialist information on key areas of clinical practice. Introductory chapters cover equipment and preparation of the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit, routine conduct of bypass, metabolic and hematological management during bypass and weaning from mechanical to physiological circulation. The effect of extracorporeal circulation on the body is described, and separate chapters detail the pathophysiology of the brain and kidney, two major sources of morbidity, in the peri-operative period. Specialist chapters on Mechanical Support, ECMO and Deep Hypothermic Circulatory Arrest are also included. Edited by expert cardiac anesthetists from Papworth Hospital, UK and the Mayo Clinic, USA, and with contributions from leading perfusionists and anesthetists, Cardiopulmonary Bypass is an invaluable practical manual for any clinical perfusionist, anesthetist or surgeons managing bypass.
