abstract

  • Positioning patients with a CO2 pneumoperitoneum in steep Trendelenburg for several hours imposes restriction of diaphragmatic and chest wall movement sufficient for respiratory gas exchange to be adversely affected. Return of function to within 15% of baseline occurred within minutes after return to supine and release of the CO2 pneumoperitoneum. No patients during the study period developed pulmonary complications that required alteration in their level of care.
