Table 1 Comparison of GTN Treatment Arms of Primary and Secondary Outcomes

From: Efficacy of Glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) to facilitate the rewarming process during cardiopulmonary bypass

Outcome Low GTN High GTN p-value
Total time to rewarming (minutes) 33.0 (23.0) 35.5 (19.0) 0.84
Time to achieve core temperature greater than 36.5 after two hours (minutes) 240.0 (240.0) 300.0 (210.0) 0.52
Time to achieve plateau core skin temperature (minutes) 480.0 (240.0) 450.0 (438.0) 0.37
Post-intervention Protamine Lactate (mmol/l) 2.8 (1.4) 3.2 (2.7) 0.56
