FORE-SIGHT Tissue Oximeter During Cardiac Surgery

The purpose of this research study is to collect data from a tissue oximeter device that measures brain oxygen saturation simultaneous with data from the same device that monitors skeletal muscle during cardiac surgery. This monitoring will allow for continuous, non-invasive, and earlier assessment of perfusion abnormalities/hypoperfusion. Two sensors from ...

Phase N/A

Investigation of Fluid- and Electrolyte Balance in Post Cardiac-surgery Patients

Critically ill patients need intravenous fluid therapy in order to correct or prevent problems with their fluid and/or electrolyte status and for renal protection. The decision for the optimal composition and amount of IV-fluids can be difficult and complex. It is well known that errors in fluid- and electrolyte management ...

Phase N/A

Comparison Endotracheal Cardiac Output Monitor (ECOM) to a Standard Device in Measuring Heart Blood Volume

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new monitor that measures cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart). The system that is being tested in this study, called Endotracheal Cardiac Output Monitor (ECOM), uses electricity (impedance cardiography) to measure cardiac output and is not harmful to ...

Phase N/A

Central Venous Saturation (ScvO2) Monitoring in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Children (ages 0-12) that have heart surgery are often at a high risk of developing complications and have to be continuously monitored. Part of the routine care at UCLA includes using a monitor (continuous central venous oxygen saturation-ScvO2) to measure the amount of oxygen saturation in the tissues (indirectly) during ...

Phase N/A

Vascular Events In Surgery patIents cOhort evaluatioN - Cardiac Surgery

Worldwide over 2 million adults (>30,000 Canadians) undergo heart surgery annually. Although heart surgery provides important survival benefits, it is associated with potential major complications such as death, stroke, and heart attack. There is promising evidence that measurement of heart injury markers after surgery will identify patients at risk of ...

Phase N/A

Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin: Biomarker of Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery

All patients aged greater than 18 years undergoing elective cardiac surgery for coronary artery bypass grafting and / or valve replacement, in need of cardiopulmonary bypass and with the prospect of minimum hospital length stay of 48 hours in ICU, will be candidates for participation in this study. Criteria for ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Dominate Stressors in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Hypothesis: Identification of events and conditions considered stressful by the cardiopulmonary bypass patient would allow the professional team to determine which stressors are amendable to intervention and tailor patient care accordingly in order to improve future patient care experience in the intensive care unit. Research Question: What are the dominant ...

Phase N/A

Thrombelastogram in Patients Receiving Antiplatelet Medication Undergoing Cardiac Surgery

Study Design: Prospective observational study with blinded assessment of study endpoint variables. Collection of information concerning study endpoints will be performed by the investigator blinded to the results of preoperative testing of platelet function. The information will be collected from 60 patients undergoing cardiac surgery in the Department of Cardiac ...

Phase N/A

Gene Expression Profiling in Subjects With Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation After Cardiac Surgery

Atrial fibrillation is a type of irregular heartbeat that is common after having heart surgery. There may be many different reasons why some people get atrial fibrillation after their heart surgery. These reasons may include that a person is older or that he/she is taking certain types of medications before ...

Phase N/A

Registry for Quality Assessment With Ultrasound Imaging and TTFM in Cardiac Bypass Surgery

The purpose of the registry is to collect information regarding the number and type of coronary artery bypass (CAB) surgical procedure changes that are made based on intraoperative guidance information using transit time flow measurements (TTFM) and ultrasound image capabilities provided with the Medistim device.
