This book provides a multidisciplinary approach to the maintenance of hemostasis and minimisation of blood loss in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. All aspects of patient blood management are covered that may contribute to a reduction in perioperative bleeding and transfusion requirements in cardiac surgery. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Effective hemostasis in cardiac surgery. Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders Co., (OCoLC) Online version. Hemostasis in cardiac surgery is still a sev ere problem for surg eons. Blood and Blood and its prod ucts are the most valuable at the same time dan gerous arms of surgeons. Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery () DOI /s without any further preparation. In order to obtain hemostasis it can be applied directly onto a bleeding wound. The hemostatic effect results from rapid dehy-dration and subsequent concentration of blood compo-nents like red blood cells, platelets and serum proteinsFile Size: 2MB.

Core topics in cardiothoracic critical care, such as hemodynamic instability, arrhythmias, bleeding, and mechanical cardiac support, are afforded broad coverage. Also included are sections on advanced ventilatory techniques and veno-venous ECMO for treating severe respiratory failure, as well as nutritional support, treating and preventing. Anticoagulation and Hemostasis in Cardiac Surgical Patients. Optimizing anticoagulation and hemostasis during cardiopulmonary bypass and perioperatively helps to ensure the best possible clinical outcome. warfarin, and direct thrombin inhibitors. Their use is discussed in the context of coronary artery surgery, valvular surgery, and Cited by: 4. Revision of surgery due to bleeding has to be performed in 2% to 6% of patients undergoing cardiac surgery and is generally associated with a marked deterioration in prognosis. Factors contributing to acquired hemostatic abnormalities in cardiac surgery include the use of anticoagulants as well as the activation and consumption of coagulation Cited by:   A further main issue of hemostasis POC testing in cardiac surgery is the inadequate quality control (QC) of methods and equipment. Medical and laboratory instrumentation is enrolled in a quality assurance program adequate in maintaining accurate Cited by:

Hemostasis in Cardiac Surgery.S. Attar, ed. Armonk, NY: Futura Press, ISBN , pp, $ A comprehensive reference, this text is well organized and complete. Its content includes the entire range of hematologic issues that confront clinicians caring for cardiac surgical patients. Monitoring of hemostasis disorders in cardiac surgery Milan Lazarević et al. One of the most difficult tasks in cardiac sur-gery is the establishment of timely, physiological hemostasis. Bleeding usually occurs during and after cardiac surgery. HEMOSTASIS IN CARDIAC SURGERY. Intraoperative Bleeding in Cardiac Surgery: Operative Hemostasis is paramount. Bleeding Post Cardiac Surgery: Acceptable rates of bleeding before surgical intervention may vary between surgeons, but are usually 2ml/kg/hr for the first 2 hours, 1ml/kh/hr for the next 3 hours and less than ml/kg/hr by Aprotinin is effective in promoting hemostasis, notably in cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. Its efficacy has been shown in coronary bypass graft operations.
