Lung Function before and Two Days after Open-Heart Surgery

Abstract: Reduced lung volumes and atelectasis are common after open-heart surgery, and pronounced restrictive lung volume impairment has been found. The aim of this study was to investigate factors influencing lung volumes on the second postoperative day. Open-heart surgery patients (n = 107, 68 yrs, 80% male) performed spirometry both before surgery and on the second postoperative day. The factors influencing postoperative lung volumes and decrease in lung volumes were investigated with univariate and multivariate ana… Show more

“…Screening techniques are being searched that would anticipate the length of stay in hospital and a 5-metre walking test has been offered [19]. Good results and reduced complications are demonstrated by programs that started before the operation and continue in the postoperative period [20,21]. Similar to our study, the highest number of complications is on the first three POD, the most common complications -respiratory, hemodynamic and cardiac conduction disorders [5,6,22].…”

“…Postoperative patient usually have different manifestation that affect their postoperative recovery including physical, psychological, emotional and pain. Utilization of breathing exercises during postoperative period is mainly reduced the stated manifestation and improve postoperative outcomes, those findings were supported by different studies including (Shashi and Rakesh, 2017, E. WESTERDAHL, 2015, E. Westerdahl and M. Fagevik, 2014, Urell, et al, 2012. Therefore, the researchers of the present study evaluates the effect of breathing exercises on quality of recovery among post-operative patients.…”

“…Open-heart surgeries and CPB alter the pulmonary function and cause multiple complications that varied from microscopic atelectasis to acute respiratory distress syndrome. Post-operative atelectasis is a common complication that different factors are responsible for its incidence ( 4 ). In an anesthetized patient, the lung tissue is compressed due to diaphragm relaxation and its upside movement ( 5 ).…”
