Surgical Site Infection and the Routine Use of Perioperative Hyperoxia in a General Surgical Population: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Surgical Procedures, Operative
Surgical Wound Infection
The routine use of high perioperative FIO2 in a general surgical population does not reduce the overall incidence of SSI and may have predominantly deleterious effects. General surgical patients should continue to receive oxygen with cardiorespiratory physiology as the principal determinant.
