Cardiopulmonary bypass during cardiac surgery provides blood flow to the body during surgery but has adverse effects on different organs. Blood flow during cardiopulmonary bypass may be pulsatile or non-pulsatile, which may impact normal organ function after surgery. The study will collect data on the type of cardiopulmonary bypass used during surgery and organ function to determine if there is an association between the type of bypass and organ function.

People released from prison experience two times higher cardiovascular (CV) mortality than the general population, have a high prevalence of poor CV health and increased risk of CV events within 2 years of release. Access to high quality healthcare following release from prison is key to preventing poor health and CV outcomes. Our study team will investigate facilitators and barriers to health care access experienced by people released from prison.
