Abstract


Continued advances in anesthesia, surgery, and perioperative medicine have improved postoperative outcome. Despite these advances postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) remain a significant problem. Pain and surgical trauma after thoracic operations lead to abnormal diaphragm function, lessened intercostals muscle tone and pulmonary dysfunction. Our duty is how to grade the risk, prepare and manage patients to minimize the risk of PPCs.

Keywords: PPCs, Atelectasis, Anaesthesia, bronchospasm, treatment, patients, etc.
