REVIEW: Perfusionists Use Simulators To Practice Emergency Scenarios
AmSECT holds perfusion simulation training that enables clinicians to practice emergency situations to improve skills and response time.

STUDY: Children's Hospital Studies New Oxygenator with Integrated Arterial Filter
Joseph Deptula, CCP, Children's Hospital, found that the CAPIOX FX05 Oxygenator significantly reduced CPB prime volumes and surface area while reducing blood donor exposure; all without compromising patient safety.

CASE STUDY: Bloodless Surgery for Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Patients
Dave Fitzgerald, CCP, describes how the INOVA Fairfax Hospital team has adopted Jehovahs Witnesses blood management strategies for all patients- adults and pediatric.

CLINICAL STUDY: Prescriptive Patient Extracorporeal Circuit and Oxygenator Sizing Reduces Hemodilution and Allogeneic Blood Product Transfusion during Adult Cardiac Surgery. JECT. 2013; 45:167-172. Bronson S, et al. (PDF)

ABSTRACT: Beneficial Effects of Modern Perfusion Concepts in Aortic Valve and Aortic Root Surgery. Perfusion 2009;24: 37-44, Kutschka, et al.
In this 170-patient study, the use of the ROCSafe™ Hybrid Perfusion System was found to reduce side effects of standard extracorporeal circulation.

ABSTRACT: Investigation of Blood Compatibility of PMEA-Coated Extracorporeal Circuits. Journal of Bioactive and Compatible Polymers, Vol 17, Sept 2002. Kocakulak M, et al.
In a study comparing PMEA-coated and uncoated oxygenators, the authors found greater retention of clotting factors and platelets and less post-op hemorrhaging when using PMEA-coated oxygenators.

ABSTRACT: Emerging Technologies in Biocompatible Surface Modifying Additives: Quest for Physiologic CPB. Cardiovascular and Hematological Agents. 2004; Vol. 2:No 4. Gunaydin S, et al.
The authors compare surface coatings, including Xcoating, in 155 CPB cases for chemical composition, biomaterial evaluation and clinical efficacy.

ABSTRACT: Biocompatibility of Poly (2-methoxyethylacrylate) Coating for Cardiopulmonary Bypass. Annals Thoracic Cardiovascular Surgery, 2003, Volume 9, No 1. Noguchi, et al.
The authors compare the biocompatibility of PMEA-coated and heparin-coated circuits by measuring several inflammatory markers. Results indicate PMEA-coated circuits are as biocompatible as heparin coated circuits.

ABSTRACT: Xcoating: A New Biopassive Polymer Coating. Canadian Perfusion Canadienne, Volume 11, No 2, June 2001. Schiel, et al.
This paper explains the mechanism and benefits of Xcoating.
