Hall, M. W. , Goodman, P. D. , Alston, S. M. and Solen, K. A. (2002), Hypothermia-induced platelet aggregation in heparinized flowing human blood: Identification of a high responder subpopulation. Am. J. Hematol. , 69: 45–55. doi: 10.
Hypothermia-induced platelet aggregation (HIPA) was previously reported in whole blood exposed to synthetic surfaces at 24°-32°C in one-third of normal subjects tested. Cardiopulmonary bypass, conducted with hypothermia, may lead to such aggregation, resulting in microvascular occlusion contributing to cognitive impairment.
001). This effect was not influenced by aprotinin but almost completely inhibited by eptifibatide ( p < 0. 001). Aprotinin has no procoagulatory effect on platelet function during hypothermia but is not protective either. Eptifibatide inhibits hypothermia-induced platelet aggregation.
