UNLABELLED We studied the effect of morbid obesity, 20 mm Hg pneumoperitoneum, and body posture (30 degrees head down and 30 degrees head up) on respiratory system mechanics, oxygenation, and ventilation during laparoscopy. We hypothesized that insufflation of the abdomen with CO(2) during laparoscopy would produce more impairment of respiratory system mechanics and gas exchange in the morbidly obese than in patients of normal weight. The static respiratory system compliance and inspiratory… CONTINUE READING
