Cardiopulmonary Bypass

  • Daniel Fitzgerald


Cardiopulmonary bypass is the circulatory and respiratory support of a patient undergoing cardiac surgery. The major components of the cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuit are the blood oxygenator and the blood pump. The ancillary components consist of a blood reservoir and filters connected by tubing. After a description of each component of the CPB circuit and its location within the circuit, vascular access and management of CPB will be described.
