Postoperative levels of hematocrit, fibrinogen and whole blood viscosity of delirious and non-delirious patients. a Hematocrit. b Fibrinogen. c The area under curve (AUC) of the whole blood viscosity (WBV) between shear rates 0.02 and 5 s-1. d The area under curve (AUC) of the whole blood viscosity (WBV) between shear rates 0.02 and 50 s-1. e The area under curve (AUC) of the whole blood viscosity corrected for hematocrit. T-1, directly after the induction of anesthesia. T0, within one hour of Intensive Care Unit admission. T24, one day after cardiothoracic surgery. T72, three days after cardiothoracic surgery. Data are expressed as mean and SD. Linear Mixed Model testing was used to determine a difference between the two groups. No significant differences were found. A two tailed p value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant
