‘Which priming fluids?’

  • M. A. Tobias
  • J. M. Fryer


It is 16 years since the South Central Association of Blood Banks met in Oklahoma City under the chairmanship of Dr Zuhdi and discussed which priming fluids were most suitable for cardiopulmonary bypass1. The title was ‘Blood, mannitol, dextran, sugar, water and confusion’, and in spite of the many papers published on the subject since then, agreement as to what constitutes the ideal prime has still not been reached. It is the purpose of this chapter to outline the changes which have taken place over the years and review some aspects of physiology relevant to the subject.
