Study Summary

This trial will study whether Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH), a blood conservation technique, can reduce transfusion in complex cardiac surgery patients. ANH has been demonstrated to reduce transfusion in lower risk cardiac surgery without any significant complications.

Eligible Conditions
  • Cardiac Surgery
  • Acute Kidney Injury
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Aortic Surgery
