Pump Head / Symptoms After Cardiac Surgery

"Pump head" is a term used for neurocognitive symptoms (symptoms affecting pathways in the brain) following heart procedures, such as by-pass surgery.

“Pump head” refers to the state in which patients seem to linger after being hooked up to a heart-lung machine for open-heart or valve surgery.

Symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Balance deficits
  • Defects associated with attention, concentration, short term memory, fine motor function, and speed of mental and motor response times.
