Post A Perfusion Event or Unique Issue…


Editors Note:

This is a new Section.  We are trying to develop a database of common or not-so-common problems encountered by perfusionists during CPB.

This is not an “Incident Report” section. 

It’s really more of a registry of the odd things that can happen on bypass- as opposed to submitting a department report or seminal event.You know- the totally odd confluence of events that can lead to a snowball effect of potentially seriously hazardous exposure for the patient?

This is a report to assist in evaluating the complex decision making process we engage in, when encountering unexpected mechanical failures or clinical events.

Please maintain your utmost discretion regarding institutional and patient privacy issues.  They obviously vary from country to country, so remain oblique in any sort of dialogue that involves patient identifiers (time, place names, type of case, dates of operations, country, city, or state).
