Adaptive Metabolic Changes in Cardiac Myocyte Metabolism Contribute to Enhanced Myocardial Performance in Translational Rodent Models of Acute Anemia.
St. Michael's Hospital
"The current CAS grant will allow our team to explore the impact of acute anemia on cardiac metabolism, myocardial oxygen homeostasis, and cardiac biomarkers to further assess the mechanism by which acute anemia contributes to adverse outcomes in perioperative patients; with the primary clinical goal of directing therapies, such as treatment of anemia and appropriately targeted blood transfusion, to improve patient outcomes."
