Abstract

Anesthesia for Jehovah's witnesses is sometimes problematic, especially when they have an open heart surgery. We could successfully manage two Jehovah's witnesses who underwent mitral valve replacement and thoracic aneurysm repair without transfusion. Prior to surgery, it is crucial for a operation to carefully assess the patient's cardiovascular reserve, estimated hemorrhage volume, permissive range of hemorrhage, alternative methods of blood transfusion, and risk of death.
