ABSTRACT
The author reflects on his knowledge regarding perfusion. According to the author, when he gains more knowledge, his mind also formulates more questions. He mentions that the measured parameters during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) only render up to the tip of the aortic cannula and the microcirculation and individual organ perfusion remains unknown. The author suggests that, if the multidisciplinary approach to research is nurtured, the capability to offer better healthcare will be strengthened.
