Observational Study on Obese Patients During General Anesthesia
There is increased frequency of asthma in obese patients. This study is trying to find out if there is a difference in the presence of bronchospasm during anesthesia in obese and non obese patients.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Bronchospasm During General Anesthesia in Obese Patients|
- The difference in the presence of bronchospasm in obese and non obese patients [ Time Frame: 90 min ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Recording the Peak pressure, plateau pressure, lung compliance, arterial blood gases and mean arterial blood pressure
- The impact of intraoperative bronchospasm on postoperative complications [ Time Frame: 1 day (24 postoperative hours) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Recording the vital signs, blood gases and postoperative pain scores for the first 24 postoperative hours
|Study Start Date:||March 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||March 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
PATIENTS WITH BMI >35
|CONTROL TEAM BMI <35|
Obese patients come for surgery every day. In this specific population the frequency of asthma is high.
Problems from the respiratory system increase the morbidity, as they are a significant part of perioperative complications.
The frequency and the severity of bronchospasm have not been studied. Any data concerning the bronchospasm will lead to better perioperative management.
In this study the investigators study any sign of bronchospasm during surgery in obese patients.
