Cardioplegia Cardioplegia involves infusing a hyperkalemic solution into the isolated coronary system causing diastolic arrest. The ‘completely still’ heart has therefore a very small metabolic requirement.

Seepage through the membrane’s micropores is halted primarily due to hydrophilic nature of the polypropylene membrane. Second the blood, on contact with the membrane, deposits a coating of proteins and platelets on the membrane 30 Artificial Organs known as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, discussed later. Heat Exchangers Like the oxygenator, the increase in surface area increases efficiency. For this reason most heat exchangers are concertinated. Common materials are stainless steel, aluminum (both of which can be plastic coated), or polypropolene.
