Cardiopulmonary Bypass: An Introduction

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Parrino PE. Cardiopulmonary Bypass: An Introduction. December 2018. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.7364945.

This is an approximately 15 minute long educational video that is designed for medical students, nursing students, anesthesia residents, or anyone who is new to the cardiac surgery operating room. It describes the basic set up for cardiopulmonary bypass, including a description of the cannulas. There is animation to help with the explanations, and intraoperative footage demonstrates the cannulation.


Great video Pat. I'll definitely use it to explain to students who wish to come in the OR to observe. Its equally great to see that someone else has as many grey hair as I do, if not more :).
