Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effective of chest physiotherapy before and after surgery [ Time Frame: 3 days (before surgery - second post operative) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 31

Arms Assigned Interventions
C, CP
Thirty-one adults were randomly assigned to control (C) and chest physiotherapy (CP) groups. Chest physiotherapy group received treatment at the post-anesthesia unit care and control group did not.
Other: chest physiotherapy
The protocol consisted of breathing exercises during 30 minutes and included: passive and localized exercises, deep diaphragmatic breathing and exercises of chest wall expansion.

Detailed Description:

Thirty-one adults were randomly assigned to control and chest physiotherapy groups. Spirometry, pulse oximetry and anamneses were performed before (pre-operative) and in the second post-operative day. Chest physiotherapy group received treatment at the post-anesthesia unit care and control group did not. Chest physiotherapy improved oxygen-hemoglobin saturation in elective post-operative abdominal surgeries.
