Chest Physiotherapy on Immediate Postoperative in Patients Submitted to High Abdominal Surgery
Chest Physiotherapy on Immediate Postoperative in Patients Submitted to High Abdominal Surgery

Abdominal surgical procedures can increase risks of pulmonary complications.The aim of the study was to evaluate the benefits of an early intervention of chest physiotherapy during immediate post-operative in patients submitted to elective abdominal surgery.

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.
