ترانسفیوژن علایم عصبی بعد از جراحی قلب را کم میکند.

Neurological disorders are common complications following coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). Dizziness in convalescence period is of high importance because it can prolong patient’s stay at the hospital and decrease in sense of rehealing. Transfusion indication is seen in hemoglobin levels < seven g/dl; however, dizziness has been frequently observed in patients with hemoglobin levels seven-ten g/dl and they have dramatic response to transfusion. Therefore, this study was designed to evaluate effect of transfusion on dizziness in hemoglobin levels of seven-ten g/dl to set a more accurate indication for transfusion in anemic patients after elective off-pump CABG.  Transfusion in hemoglobin levels of seven-ten g/dl can be useful to decrease dizziness in anemic patients after elective off-pump CABG; however, the guidelines in textbooks suggest transfusion after CABG to be in hemoglobin levels < Seven g/dl.
