Background: It was believed that inflammatory response induced by cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was blamed for complications after cardiac surgery.
Hemodilution occurs primarily as a result of the initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) due to replacing a portion of the patient's blood volume with the priming solution (crystalloids and colloids) in the CPB circuit.
