The society of thoracic surgeons, the society of cardiovascular anesthesiologists, and the american society of extracorporeal technology: Clinical practice guidelines for cardiopulmonary bypass-temperature management during cardiopulmonary bypass
J Extra Corpor Technol
To improve our understanding of the evidence-based literature supporting temperaturemanagement during adult cardiopulmonary bypass, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons, the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiology and the American Society of ExtraCorporeal Technology tasked the authors to conduct a review of the peer-reviewed literature, including 1) optimal site for temperature monitoring, 2) avoidance of hyperthermia, 3) peak cooling temperature gradient and cooling rate, and 4) peak warming temperature gradient and rewarming rate. Authors adopted the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association method for development clinical practice guidelines, and arrived at the following recommendation.
