RECENT PUBLICATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Recommendations for Standards of Monitoring during Cardiopulmonary Bypass
1-Aug-2016

The aim of this document is to determine standards of monitoring during cardiopulmonary bypass for adult and paediatric surgery. These standards are considered by the Society of Clinical Perfusion Scientists of Great Britain and Ireland, the Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthetists and the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgeons in Great Britain and Ireland to be the minimal monitoring required during cardiopulmonary bypass. This includes monitoring for the onset of and weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass, and for confirmation of anticoagulation and ventilation of the lungs.
