Surgical Procedure Lecture
Part 1: Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB)

Description: The use of cardiopulmonary bypass makes cardiac surgery patients a unique population. While the use of cardiopulmonary bypass enables surgeons to perform procedures otherwise impossible, managing the patient's inflammatory response to multiple systems poses unique challenges for their operative, and post-operative care. This lecture focuses on the nursing considerations for post-operative care on a cardiovascular ICU.
