Acute normovolemic hemodilution, intraoperative cell salvage and PulseCO hemodynamic monitoring in a Jehovah's Witness with placenta percreta



Acute normovolemic hemodilution, intraoperative cell salvage and PulseCO hemodynamic monitoring in a Jehovah's Witness with placenta percreta



International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia 17(2): 159-163



A Jehovah's Witness who had had four previous cesarean deliveries was referred to our institution for management of a complete placenta previa at 34 weeks of gestation. A subsequent ultrasound scan was suggestive of placenta percreta with bladder involvement. After erythropoietin and iron supplementation, cesarean hysterectomy was performed. Using PulseCO technology for continuous hemodynamic monitoring, preoperative acute normovolemic hemodilution and intraoperative cell salvage were used resulting in a successful cesarean hysterectomy with a 5500-mL estimated blood loss. The PulseCO system provides continuous, real-time hemodynamic data by applying pulse power analysis to the arterial pressure waveform. A bolus of oxytocin given after delivery produced profound hypotension, the hemodynamics of which were elucidated with the PulseCO system. To our knowledge, the combined use of acute normovolemic hemodilution, intraoperative cell salvage and PulseCO hemodynamic monitoring for cesarean hysterectomy has not been reported previously. These techniques may be particularly useful in managing patients who refuse blood products and/or in whom the baseline hemoglobin is suboptimal.
