5 Arterial Pump Flow Arterial pump flow or cardiac output during CPB must be maintained between a range that ensures the patients metabolic demands at met without increasing blood damage and microemboli delivery. Extracorporeal support facilitates a very acute control over the patients cardiac output. The patients cardiac output (and therefore blood pressure) can be reduced to almost zero for short periods of time. Prolonged underperfusion can result in organ damage, for example, the kidneys, the liver, the gut, and the brain.

But the ability to generate pulsatile flow in the patient’s circulation and the blood damage it causes. Venous Pressure The central venous pressure (CVP) gives a direct indication of the amount of blood in the heart. This is important to ensure that we do not overfill the heart when we are gradually terminating CPB and asking the heart to do its own work again. It also provides advance warning when blood is not draining properly from the heart alerting the perfusionist to an impending reduction in venous reservoir level.

Within the pump, and also throughout the circuit, areas of extreme pressure must be engineered out. Flow of fluid that becomes turbulent produce shear stresses that damage cells, and areas of negative pressure have the ability to drag gas out of solution and thus entrain gas into blood. The arguments about the advantages of delivering a pulsatile flow are unresolved; Taylor Figure 2-7.
