After weaning from CPB, the residual blood in the extracorporeal circuit was salvaged and processed either through a cell-saving device or simply bagged before patient reinfusion.
If acute hemolysis is suspected, hemodialysis should be stopped immediately without returning the blood in the extracorporeal circuit and the appropriate support provided, depending upon the extent of the reaction.
Long CPB time requires more frequent doses of heparin and longer contact time with extracorporeal circuit, which may cause not only destruction of platelets but also platelet activation and release of large amount of PF4.
One example of clinical waste is the single-use HD extracorporeal circuit at the end of dialysis therapy containing dialysate and/or 0.9% sodium chloride and blood.
Anticoagulation is routinely required during hemodialysis to prevent clotting within the extracorporeal circuit (ECC).
Miniaturisation of the Extracorporeal Circuit. Mini-CPB bypass was developed in adult heart surgery in an attempt to reduce contact activation, air fluid interface, and cell damage by cardiotomy suction and haemodilution.
Conclusions: In our study, the administration of sodium heparin in the extracorporeal Circuit improves the coagulation end State of the system, which means less blood loss for the patient.
In addition to bleeding due to spillover of regional extracorporeal circuit, heparinisation or disease associated coagulopathy, filter induced haemolysis, and blood loss due to repeated sudden clotting of extracorporeal circuit may have contributed to the haemoglobin drop seen in our patients.
In addition to that prolonged CPB time mean prolongation of time of contact of blood to extracorporeal circuit, more exposure to hypothermia and more heparin doses are used, and usually associated with more complex procedures.
