OBJECTIVE To study the influence of a novel intermittent sequential pneumatic compression device (Lympha-press) on the adverse cardiac and peripheral hemodynamic changes induced by positive-pressure pneumoperitoneum (PPPn) in laparoscopic surgery. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Creation of PPPn is known to cause adverse central and peripheral hemodynamic changes. An intrasubject observational study was undertaken to quantitate these adverse changes and to assess the influence of an intermittent… CONTINUE READING
