Abstract
An extracorporeal circuit consisting of an oxygenator especially designed for neonatal use and appropriately sized tubing, with an average total priming volume of 205 ml, was used on 80 infants undergoing cardiac surgery for congenital heart-disease. The priming volume and foreign surface area of the circuit were determined. The influence of low priming volumes on the use of blood products and the management of cardiopulmonary bypass was studied. No whole blood or platelets were used in this study. The mean volume of packed red blood cells used over the hospital stay was 202 +/- 67 ml. The mean volume of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) used until the second postoperative day was 62 +/- 72 ml. The mean total blood loss until the second postoperative day was 15.8 +/- 9.2 ml/kg. The priming volume of the extracorporeal circuit was 62% lower than values commonly reported in the literature. The low priming volume had a strong influence on the use of platelets and FFP and to a lesser extent on the use of packed red blood cells.
