ECC

(1) See elliptic curve cryptography.

(2) (Error-Correcting Code, Error-Correction Code) A software algorithm that is used to correct errors in memory and storage devices, as well as in transmission systems. Error-correcting code detects and corrects errors in real time. See ECC memory.

Prior to the implementation of the QI activity, standard unit practice post-HD was to return the patients' blood via the HD machine with online substitution fluid or 0.9% sodium chloride, then disconnect the extracorporeal circuit from the patient.
Therefore, the calcium infusion rate depends mainly on the calcium loss rate by CRRT in the absence of citrate accumulation.[sup][15],[16] In the present study, citrate was infused upstream in the extracorporeal circuit of CVVH at an initial infusion rate of 29.9 mmol/h with a fixed blood flow rate of 150 ml/min and a fixed calcium-free replacement fluid flow rate of 2000 ml/h postfilter, the citrate infusion rate was adjusted according to postfilter ionized calcium, which was maintained between 0.25 and 0.35 mmol/L.
This can prove to be significant because of the relation of the blood circulating volume and the volume of the extracorporeal circuit [99].
Patient direct heparinization versus extracorporeal Circuit heparinization in hemodialysis: a comparative study
We also observed a clinically relevant drop in platelet count, most likely due to platelet activation and consumption in the extracorporeal circuit [25, 39].
Improvements in equipment, patient selection and a better understanding of extracorporeal circuit technology have resulted in some centres reporting significantly improved outcomes (6-8).
Pre-filter fluid replacement and minimal heparin were used during the process of CVVH as a preventative measure to prevent clotting of blood in the extracorporeal circuit; however, early clotting of the extracorporeal circuit still occurred.
The system is an extracorporeal circuit comprised of a hollow fiber cartridge containing porcine hepatocytes, coupled with charcoal in a plasma-perfused circuit.
Abumin concentration at 48 hours after surgery had a positive correlation with the duration of cardiopulmonary bypass establishing the role of the extracorporeal circuit in systemic inflammatory response activation and causation of endothelial cell injury17.
Purpose: To measure any significant differences in prolonged bleeding and/or changes in clotting of the extracorporeal circuit with implications on patient safety and decreased nursing workload.
