Perfusion Clinical Resources
Tools and Tips
The International Consortium for Evidence-Based Perfusion (ICEBP) is a voluntary, multi-stakeholder collaboration that seeks to advance the delivery of care and outcomes for our patients.
Vision of the ICEBP
To continuously improve the quality and safety of perfusion to the patient’s we serve.
To achieve this mission, the ICEBP will:
- Support the use of clinical registries dedicated to the evaluation of cardiovascular perfusion.
- Develop and publish evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, clinical protocols and professional standards and guidelines, and support their integration into clinical practice.
- Identify gaps in the medical literature and empower investigation into areas where evidence is lacking.
- Identify gaps between current and evidence-based clinical practice to promote the improvement in patient care.
In order to succeed, the ICEBP will engage its community through a web portal, professional venues, and internal and external publications.

The results of a survey among perfusionists and anesthesiologists, about current practice and the role of the previously published guidelines in changing these practices, were published. This was a joint publication in JECT and Anesthesia and Analgesia.
The survey was commented on by Eugene A. Hessel and Jerrold H. Levy. Read their interesting discussion in A&A
