Anesthetic Management for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
What is it about?
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has proven to be a major advance in the treatment of patients with symptomatic gall bladder diseases. Several advantages from this procedure are minimal tissue trauma, reduction of postoperative pain, quicker recovery, shortening the hospital stay.
Why is it important?
Pneumoperitoneum induces intraoperative cardiorespiratory changes. Arterial CO2 increases because of CO2 absorption from the pneumoperitoneum. Improved knowledge of pathophysiological changes in the patients allows for successful anesthetic management. Proper patient selection and preparation as well as adequate monitoring should be performed.
