Many studies have reported on the effects of pneumoperitoneum in a rat model, using a wide range of intra-abdominal pressures. The correlation between pneumoperitoneal pressures in rodents to pressures in humans has not been established. This study evaluates changes in various physiological parameters in different pneumoperitoneum pressures in the rat model with a comparison to known data in humans. Three groups of eight Wistar rats each were anesthetized, tracheostomized, and mechanically… CONTINUE READING
