Title:

Beating Heart Bypass Surgery

Description:

Traditionally bypass operation or CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting) is done using the help of Heart Lung Bypass (CPB or Cardio-pulmonary Bypass) machine. This machine does what heart and lungs do normally in the body. It gives Oxygen to the blood, takes away Carbon-dioxide from it and pumps the blood to all parts of the body. This enables surgeon to stop the heart and make it bloodless. Complicated surgical procedures can thus be performed safely and with greater precision. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Traditionally bypass operation or CABG (Coronary
Artery Bypass Grafting) is done using the help of
Heart Lung Bypass (CPB or Cardio-pulmonary
Bypass) machine.

This machine does what heart and lungs do
normally in the body. It gives Oxygen to the
blood, takes away Carbon-dioxide from it and
pumps the blood to all parts of the body. This
enables surgeon to stop the heart and make it
bloodless.
5
Complicated surgical procedures can thus be
performed safely and with greater precision.
However the CPB machine is not without its share
of dangers.
6
As the blood comes in contact with the tubes and
the pumps of the machine, the body systems
recognize it as a foreign atmosphere and reacts
to it.
7
This reaction can create a variety of harmful
effects on different organs and some of them can
even be fatal.
