  1. 1. Perioperative complications in obese patients A thesis on risk reducing strategies

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Fredrik Ander; Örebro universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intubation time; videolaryngoscopy; obesity; esophagogastric junction; remifentanil; esmolol; high-resolution manometry; pulmonary aspiration; postoperative pain; postoperative opioid-sparing;

    Abstract : Aspiration of gastric content and delayed or failed intubation are the leading causes of anesthesia-related mortality and morbidity. In the recovery period, airway obstruction with subsequent hypoxia is a relatively common cause of morbidity, and is highly associated to the amount of opioids administered, especially in obese patients.
