Squadrone et al. CPAP post abdominal surgery. JAMA 2005

Created: 16/5/2007

Paper type

Randomised controlled trial


Squadrone V, Coha M, Ceruttiet E et al.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure for treatment of Postoperative Hypoxaemia: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
JAMA 2005 293; 589-595

Major Finding

Early treatment with CPAP in patients that develop early post-operative hypoxaemia after major abdominal surgery reduces the need for intubation, ICU stay, the incidence of pneumonia, infection and sepsis.

Point for discussion:

How applicable are the results of this study with quite selective trial inclusion criteria to the type of patients undergoing laparotomy in the UK?
