BACKGROUND Experimental and clinical studies document risks of acid-base balance alterations toward acidosis and hypercapnia during intraperitoneal carbon dioxide insufflation. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of different insufflation pressures on arterial blood gas changes and acid-base alterations during laparoscopic cholecystectomy and immediately postoperatively. METHODS Thirty patients were randomized to receive either 10 or 15 mmHg insufflation pressure. Anesthesia was… CONTINUE READING
