Total blood management during cardiopulmonary bypass requires intentional strategies to be effective. Key areas of impact involve creating a team atmosphere, reducing hemodilution, and optimizing a point of care testing. True team atmospheres realize innovative collaboration by establishing an appropriate discussion platform and maximizing complimentary gender-specific contributions. Technical strategies, from a perfusion standpoint, focus on disposable components, autologous blood management, and cardioplegia modifications. Finally, point of care testing is utilized to justify, improve, and standardize practices. Perfusion's contribution to strategic blood management contributes to improved patient outcomes.
