Comparison of incentive spirometry and active cycle of breathing techniques for prevention of postoperative pulmonary complication in patients with upper abdominal surgery


Author(s): Mayur Katare and Dr. Pallavi Chicholikar

Abstract: Introduction: Surgeries alter postoperative pulmonary function, as observed by impairment of lungs volume such as total lung capacity, vital capacity and tidal volume. It also reduces the efficiency of efforts to cough for as long as one week and also fall in a oxygen arterial pressure and in oxygen-hemoglobin saturation.
Aim: To compare effectiveness of Incentive Spirometry and ACBT in prevention of postoperative pulmonary complications in upper abdominal surgeries.
Objective: To study effect of Incentive spirometry and ACBT in prevention of postoperative pulmonary complications in upper abdominal surgeries.
Procedure: Ethical clearance was taken from ethical committee. Two groups were made. 30 patients were taken in each group by convenient sampling method. The details of research were explained to subjects and written consent form was charted out. Pre - assessment of both the groups was done using PFT post – operative on day 2.Subjects in group A received ACBT and subjects in group B received incentive Spirometry for duration of 15 mins for 5days. Post assessment was done on the 5th day of the treatment session. The readings was noted and further considered. Further data analysis was be done.
Results: After 5 days of training program post values of spirometry showed extremely significant improvement.
Conclusion: This study concludes that the effect of incentive spirometery is more significant than ACBT to prevent post surgery pulmonary complication after upper abdominal surgery.
