Abstract

Carboxyhemoglobin levels were measured in patients undergoing posterior lumbar spine surgery with use of intraoperative cell saver blood salvage. Increased carboxyhemoglobin levels were demonstrated in cell saver salvaged blood. Systemic blood Carboxyhemoglobin levels increased with cell saver blood transfusion. No patient demonstrated clinical effects of carbon monoxide toxicity.
