Title

Ventilation strategies in obese patients undergoing surgery: a quantitative systematic review and meta-analysis

Authors
Published in British Journal of Anaesthesia. 2012, vol. 109, no. 4, p. 493-502
Abstract Pathophysiological changes due to obesity may complicate mechanical ventilation during general anaesthesia. The ideal ventilation strategy is expected to optimize gas exchange and pulmonary mechanics and to reduce the risk of respiratory complications.
