The changes occurring in total respiratory system, lung and chest wall mechanics, lung volume and gas-exchange during abdominal insufflation with carbon dioxide for laparoscopic cholecystectomy were studied. Using the technique of rapid airway occlusion during constant flow inflation together with an oesophageal balloon, we computed compliance and maximum resistance of the respiratory system, subsequently apportioning it into its lung and chest wall components. Maximum resistance of the… CONTINUE READING
