Intraoperative mechanical ventilation and postoperative pulmonary complications after cardiac surgery.
In this study, the authors hypothesized that a bundled intraoperative protective ventilation strategy was independently associated with decreased odds of pulmonary complications after cardiac surgery. They identified an intraoperative lung-protective ventilation bundle as independently associated with pulmonary complications after cardiac surgery. Their findings offer insight into components of protective ventilation associated with adverse outcomes and may serve as targets for future prospective interventional studies investigating the impact of specific protective ventilation strategies on postoperative outcomes after cardiac surgery.
