Intracerebral hemorrhage is a devastating complication in patients treated with extracorporeal-membrane-oxygenation (ECMO) due to acute respiratory or cardiac issues.

Heart or/and lung transplantation: Alloreactive immune response begins immediately after blood circulation is re-initiated and the contact with the donor occurs. The strongest immune response must be expected during this early phase. Antibody-mediated rejection remains an unsolved problem in thoracic transplantation. It typically does not respond to conventional therapies and there are no standardized treatment strategies. Immunsuppressants generally affect only cellular signal transfer, Dr. Rolf Bambauer and colleagues emphasize.

Many autoimmune diseases and intoxications are successfully treated with plasma exchange methods. The broad application greatly enriched therapeutic possibilities. Dr. Rolf Bambauer and colleagues give an overview of the therapeutic apheresis (TA) including all semi- and selective methods. The procedures, their functions, indications, clinical results, criticisms, and future aspects are discussed.

"Despite the perceived benefits of transfusion, research has indicated that exposure to allogeneic blood is associated with increased risks of morbidity and mortality following cardiac surgery. Adverse postoperative clinical outcomes, such as renal failure, stroke, pulmonary dysfunction, and infections have been reported. While these complications have been linked to as few as one to two units of donor red blood cells, the impact of patient outcome is believed to be dose-dependent," David C. Fitzgerald and Joseph J. Sistino emphasize (in the new textbook "Extracorporeal Circulation").

Method effects in psychological assessment are described as systematic variation observed in measurement that originates from the method of measurement instead of from the attribute, which the scale or measurement procedure is expected to capture. Method effects are major sources of impairment of the quality of measurement. Because of a method effect a scale or measurement procedures does not or only partly measure what is expected to measure.
