Brief Summary:

The aim of this study is to assess the capability of a modified under bed weighing scale (contact-free unconstrained respiratory monitor, BSS) to predict postoperative pulmonary complications in high-risk surgical patients.

The study is designed to test the hypothesis that abnormal breathing measured by a modified under bed weighing scale predicts postoperative pulmonary complications within 7 days after surgery.

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Bed sensor monitoring system
    Respiratory patterns in the post-anesthesia care unit will be assessed using a validated, modified under bed weighing scale placed under the patient's bed in the PACU.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Postoperative pulmonary complications [ Time Frame: First 7 postoperative days ]
    atelectasis, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pulmonary aspiration, re-intubation, unprecedented non-invasive ventilation, unplanned ICU admission, or re-admission to the hospital due to respiratory complication.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Postoperative pulmonary complications [ Time Frame: First 3 postoperative days ]
    atelectasis, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pulmonary aspiration, re-intubation, unprecedented non-invasive ventilation, unplanned ICU admission, or re-admission to the hospital due to respiratory complication.

  2. Major adverse Cardiovascular events [ Time Frame: First 7 postoperative days ]
    death, myocardial infarction, coronary revascularization, stroke, and heart failure.

  3. Hospital length of stay [ Time Frame: 30 days after surgery ]
    Duration from surgery to hospital discharge

  4. Adverse discharge disposition [ Time Frame: 30 days after surgery ]
    lost of ability to live independently: adverse discharge disposition to a skilled nursing facility or in-hospital mortality
