Title: Effects of humidified gas insufflation in endoscopic surgery
Author: Mouton, Wolfgang Georg
Issue Date: 1998
School/Discipline: Dept. of Surgery
Abstract: Evaluates whether humidification of warmed insufflated carbon dioxide (CO2) gas during laparoscopic procedures would resolve the problem of laparoscopy-inducted hypothermia. A randomised controlled clinical trial conducted during laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed to determine the extent of heat preservation and postoperative pain reduction using humidified CO2 gas insufflation instead of standard dry insufflation gas. A study was designed to determine whether the beneficial effects of humidified gas insufflation applied also to thoracoscopy.
