3 Development of pulmonary complications after cardiopulmonary bypass is multi-factorial; alteration in the function of chest muscles and wall due to median sternotomy, systemic inflammatory response syndrome initiated by establishing cardiopulmonary bypass, phrenic nerve damage caused by administration of cold saline in the pericardial cavity during cardiac arrest and alveolar edema caused by left ventricular distension and elevated pressure in the pulmonary vasculature are considered the main contributing factors for this lethal complication.
