There are many emergency situations that arise during CPB that the cardiac team can overcome. A patient’s blood clotting during CPB is not a recoverable situation. Full anticoagulation is required to prevent clotted blood blocking the CPB circuit. Heparin is an anticoagulant that is ideal for this purpose: it has an affect that is easily measurable by activated clotted time (ACT), well tolerated, is relatively cheap and is easily reversible with protamine. Heparin binds to anti-thrombin III; 32 Artificial Organs Figure 2-12.
