Aiming for a perfusate hematocrit of 30% is almost certainly preferable to a lower hematocrit not only for its greater oxygen carrying capacity but also because it means less dilution of coagulation factors and platelets.

Shunt thrombosis after a Norwood operation is a life-threatening event as is coronary thrombosis after an arterial switch. On the other hand an experienced surgical team can almost always manage bleeding without too much difficulty.

At the same time the cardioplegia site in the ascending aorta is widely opened to allow air to vent. Blood can be used to fill the left heart if a single venous cannula is in use. By raising the venous pressure by temporarily retarding venous return, blood will pass through the lungs into the left heart where it will displace air as long as there is an open vent site, such as the cardioplegia needle site in the ascending aorta.
