About this book

This book provides a multidisciplinary approach to the maintenance of hemostasis and minimisation of blood loss in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. All aspects of patient blood management are covered that may contribute to a reduction in perioperative bleeding and transfusion requirements in cardiac surgery. This is achieved through practical cases and a theoretical background that gives a better understanding of patient hemostasis and the occurrence of bleeding complications.

This book is relevant to cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, clinical perfusionists, hematologists and intensivists.

Reviews

“This well written and practical book is relevant for surgeons, perfusionists, anesthesiologists, hematologists, and intensivists who represent the multidisciplinary team responsible for the management of cardiac surgery patients. … This a great book for practitioners. It offers in‐depth discussions of complicated disciplines such as pharmacology and hematology in a concise manner using a practical format.” (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, September 06, 2019)
