|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||12 participants|
|Official Title:||Effect of Weight Loss on Postural Changes in Pulmonary Function : a Longitudinal Study in Morbidly Obese to Obese Subjects Following Gastroplasty|
|Study Start Date :||August 2005|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||October 2008|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||October 2008|
Consecutive morbidly obese adults (BMI over or equal to 40 kg/m2) scheduled for bariatric surgery were prospectively recruited.Subjects with respiratory and cardiac history (asthma, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure) were excluded.
Other: Postural change in lung volumes: sitting to Supine
Pulmonary function and arterial blood gases were assessed both prior to and after weight loss as part of pre-operative and 12-month follow-up evaluations.
Pulmonary function tests were performed both in the sitting and then in the supine position.
- functional residual capacity [ Time Frame: baseline and one year after bariatric surgery ]
- lung volumes and flows [ Time Frame: at baseline and after bariatric surgery ]
