  1. Predicting the need for blood during cardiopulmonary bypass

    Predicting the need for blood during cardiopulmonary bypass

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Haematocrit (Hct) values <18%-20% during cardiopulmonary bypass (HctCPB) are potentially unsafe. Aims: 1. To predict when banked-blood should be pre-issued. 2. To evaluate the sparing-effect of banked-blood by autologous blood transfusions. Methods: An equation for prediction of HctCPB (Hctpred),...

    Oxygen dissociation curves of whole blood from the Egyptian free-tailed bat, <em>Tadarida aegyptiaca</em> E. Geoffroy, using a thin-layer optical cell

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Tadarida aegyptiaca (mean body mass 13.5 g) is a fast flying insectivorous bat that hunts in open areas for extended periods, covering extensive distances during its foraging bouts. Whole blood samples taken from the wing arteries were analysed for 2,3-diphosphoglyceric...
  3. Microfilarial infections associated with body mass loss of Village Weavers <em>Ploceus cucullatus</em>

    Microfilarial infections associated with body mass loss of Village Weavers <em>Ploceus cucullatus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Haemoparasitic infections in wild birds have been widely studied in order to understand parasite–host relation- ships, but our understanding of their impact on the host's fitness is still limited. In this study, we quantified the associations between microfilarial infections and...
