Course description

*The Impact of CPB on Platelets, Role of Preoperative C-reactive Protein, and Blood Storage Insights*

Dive deep into the intricate world of perfusion with this three-part program specially curated for perfusionists and medical professionals. 

1. **Vanderbilt University Medical Center; Department of CV Surgery: Faculty Forum**  
   - **Topic:** The Effect of Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) on Platelets  
   Unpack the dynamics between the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit and blood components. Get insights into how CPB can influence platelet counts and their functional attributes.

2. **Tammy Sparacino Journal Club:**  
   - **Topic:** Preoperative C-reactive Protein and its Potential as a Postoperative Acute Kidney Injury Predictor in CABG Patients  
   C-reactive protein, a prominent inflammation marker, can display preoperative spikes even without infection presence in adult cardiac surgery patients. Join us as we delve into a comprehensive literature review, highlighting the potential links between preoperative C-reactive protein levels and postoperative acute kidney injury in coronary artery bypass grafting scenarios. Note: The discussion majorly encompasses observational study findings focusing on this correlation.

3. **John Ingram Knowledge Nuggets:**  
   - **Topic:** The Effects of Blood Storage on Blood Components  
   Unearth the profound effects of blood storage on various blood components. A must-watch for anyone keen to understand the nuanced changes that occur during blood preservation.

The effect of Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB) on Platelets Program will discuss how the cardiopulmonary bypass circuit interacts with blood components and directly affects platelet counts and functionality. 

Tammy Sparacino Journal Club: 
Preoperative C-reactive protein as a predictor of postoperative acute kidney injury in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. C-reactive protein is a well-known marker of inflammation and may be preoperatively elevated in the absence of infection in adult cardiac surgery patients, indicating a baseline inflammatory process. We conducted a literature search to assess the available evidence on whether there is an association between preoperative C-reactive protein and acute kidney injury after coronary artery bypass grafting. Included only were observational studies which investigated this association.
