Pulmonary and Thoracic Anesthesia

The primary function of the lungs is to provide an adequate gas exchange for maintaining normal oxygen content in blood and eliminate carbon dioxide. This is achieved by optimizing volumes of the lung to meet higher metabolic demand during the perioperative period. Intake of anesthetic agents it will provoke pronounced effects on pulmonary function in comparison to anticholinergic and other blocking agents. Combination of sedatives and analgesic cause worse effects and leads to pulmonary disease. Anesthesia in the thoracic region is administered during thoracic surgery in order to minimize pain and to develop postoperative morbidity essential mechanical ventilation. It represents a combination of physiological problems are as follows: one lung ventilation, open pneumothorax, lateral decubitus position.

  • Respiratory Dysfunction
  • Pulmonary Bypass
  • Pulmonary Embolism
