Local Assessment of Ventilatory Management During General Anesthesia for Surgery - a Prospective Observational Multi-center Cohort Study


Rochester, Minn.

Trial status:

Open for Enrollment

Why is this study being done?

Research questions - What MV-settings are used during general anesthesia for surgery? - Do MV-settings vary in and/or between centers? - Do MV-settings vary internationally? - Are MV-settings associated with incidence of intra-operative pulmonary complications? - Are MV-settings associated with incidence of post-operative pulmonary complications?

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: - Age ≥ 18 years - All surgical procedures requiring invasive mechanical ventilation (MV)during general anesthesia for laparoscopic or non-laparoscopic surgery. - This includes MV performed with supra-glottic devices (e.g. laryngeal mask) - This includes patients receiving MV at the onset of the procedure (e.g. Intensive Care Unit patients) - This includes patients who will receive one-lung ventilation during the procedure Exclusion Criteria: - Obstetric surgical procedures or any procedure during pregnancy - Surgical procedures outside the operating room - Surgical procedures involving extra-corporal circulation
