Recent studies suggest the carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum and patient positioning causes hemodynamic alterations, respiratory acidosis, and a release of stress hormones. However, to date, no studies have investigated the physiological effect of laparoscopic procedures lasting more than 60 minutes on the stress response and the effect of Trendelenburg… CONTINUE READING
