antiemetic necessity was 24.1% in the control group and 3.7% in the experimental group.
Many of the patients with postoperative
pulmonary complications require ventilatory support for a prolonged period, although it definitely helps in improving the outcome of the abdominal surgeries, but it adds to overall expenses.
We used the criteria recommended by the Japan Clinical Otology Committee for calculation of the hearing improvement using the results of patients with postoperative
hearing within 40 dB as the first criterion, hearing gain exceeding 15 dB as the second criterion, and postoperative
ABG within 20 dB as the third criterion [2, 3].
urine sample was obtained by cleaning the catheter hub with alcohol followed by clamping the catheter for 15-30 minutes to allow an adequate amount of urine to collect in the bladder.
pain relief after CD can negatively impact ambulation, breastfeeding, and even maternal bonding [2, 5].
Recent studies also found that fat subtype and distribution can predict postoperative
infectious complications after bowel resection for CD, and visceral fat is associated with high risk of postoperative
recurrence in CD [8, 9].
Other significant independent predictors included postoperative
SCU stay, postoperative
transfusion need, complications during stay and urinary tract infection (UTI) (Table-2).
Lumbar disc surgery is associated with moderate to severe postoperative
pain (7, 8).
Table-IV: Comparison of preoperative and postoperative
blood values of Group 1 and 2.
The samples were collected preoperatively, at the postoperative
2nd hour, and on postoperative
days 1 and 2.
The primary end points of the study were and incidence of postoperative
pulmonary complications (PPCs), occurring within the first 30 postoperative
days, BiPAP usage and prolonged ventilation time whereas in hospital mortality was the secondary end point.
It is also worth noting that this study focused on patients undergoing major and minor gynecologic surgery, so more research is needed to explore these outcomes particularly among patients undergoing procedures that may be associated with a higher risk of persistent postoperative
pain and/or opioid use.
