    Filtration of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) priming fluid before connection of the circuit to the patient was first accomplished by arterial line filtration. When dedicated prebypass filters (PBFs) with smaller pore sizes became available, a large number of particles could be found on the filter...

    The ideal prime for Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) has never been fully established. The development of acid-base disorders during some routine cases and the possible contribution to this from priming fluids caused this hospital to question its protocol. As a result, we conducted a survey of UK...
