To evaluate the vital capacity after two chest therapy techniques in patients undergoing abdominal surgical. A prospective randomized study carried out with patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit after abdominal surgery. We checked vital capacity, muscular strength using the Medical Research Council scale, and functionality with the Functional Independence Measure the first time the patient was breathing spontaneously D1and also upon discharge from the Intensive Care Unit Ddis.

Between D1 and Ddis, respiratory therapy was carried out according to the randomized group. The vital capacity improvement was not associated with gain of muscle strength. Chest therapy, with positive pressure and volumetric incentive spirometer, was effective in improving vital capacity of patients submitted to abdominal surgery. Static lung volume measurement plays an important role in pulmonary functional assessment, indirectly providing lung elasticity, and establishing forced expiratory flows.

Shallow breathing occurs as a result of pain, reducing lung volume and capacity, which may last for 7 to 14 days after the surgical procedure.

Respiratory therapy is helpful from the prevention to the treatment of pulmonary complications and comprises several techniques. The objective of using of the incentive spirometer is to encourage the patient, through visual feedback, to sustain maximum inspiration. Bi-level positive airway pressure, whether continuous or intermittent, has proven beneficial in prevention and treatment of pulmonary complications after heart surgeries.

A review study showed the efficacy of continuous positive airway pressure, aiming to reduce the risk of pulmonary complications in patients undergoing abdominal surgery.

However, the efficacy of respiratory therapy during postoperative abdominal surgery is still controversial.

Nevertheless, Lawrence et al. It is known that respiratory therapy plays an important role in pulmonary rehabilitation, regardless of the technique employed. However, there are few studies that significantly express a comparison between techniques, such as the incentive spirometer and bi-level intermittent positive airway pressure during bedside patient care in the postoperative period of abdominal surgery upper or lower.

To assess vital capacity by comparing two respiratory therapy techniques in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. A randomized prospective analysis, in patients admitted to the adult and clinical-surgical Intensive Care Unit ICUin a private hospital.

This study was approved by the Research Ethics Committee, under protocol number Patients included were over 18 years of age and underwent abdominal surgery, with or without pulmonary complications.

Randomization was done by a draw to divide the patients into two groups: Measurement of vital capacity VC was performed as described by the American Thoracic Society and by the European Respiratory Society, 12 on the first day the patient started breathing spontaneously D1 and on the day of discharge from the ICU Ddis. Vital capacity was always checked at the beginning of treatment D1 before and Ddis before and at the end of respiratory therapy D1 after and Ddis after and 30 minutes after it D and Ddis The respiratory therapy technique to be used with patients, according to the randomized group, was followed at all times.


These measurements were collected on D1 and Ddis. With regards to respiratory therapy at the time of patient assessment in the study, the following exercises were performed: To wrap up the treatment according to randomization, bi-level intermittent positive airway pressure was performed in the Positive Intermittent Pressure Group, with the proper equipment for non-invasive, bi-level pressure mechanical ventilation, with inspiratory airway pressure and end-expiratory airway pressure.

Due to the lack of studies showing the benefits between the use of bi-level intermittent positive airway pressure techniques and volumetric incentive spirometer in postoperative patients who underwent abdominal surgery, it was possible to do the calculation of the sample based on the results of the first 10 cases assessed pilot. Thus, the required sample for the study was 19 patients per group.

Vital capacity results were respiratrkos on the second day of assessment and at the moments to evaluate measurements during therapy before, at the end of therapy, and 30 minutes after. MRC and FIM results were described as days of assessment and using summary measurements mean, standard deviation, median, minimum reepiratrios maximum.

The rewpiratrios comprised a sample of 38 individuals who were divided into two groups after randomization. The sample did not show significant difference between age, total days at the ICU, and total days of hospital incentivavores between the groups.

The groups were homogenous and did not show significant difference between their characteristics, such as gender, personal background, and respiratory complications. However, the type of abdominal surgery was not a criterion for randomization interference Table 1. However, in regards to the correlation between each moment, there was significant difference in VC measurements Figure 1.

After the surgical procedure, all patients presented VC below the predicted lower limit. Even with significant gain after respiratory therapy, VC measurements remained below the predicted lower limit 1 Table 2.

Nonetheless, even though these measurements were below the lower limit, there was significant gain in VC after respiratory therapy.

Respiratory therapy, with volumetric incentive spirometer or intermittent positive pressure, is efficient with regards to VC gain for patients undergoing abdominal surgery.

The Positive Intermittent Pressure Group was eespiratrios by respiratruos higher percentage of upper abdominal surgeries, most of which were liver transplants, whereas the Volumetric Incentive Spirometer Group had a prevalence of lower abdominal surgeries. Although the groups did not present significant differences between them, literature shows that upper abdominal surgeries tend to trigger more pulmonary complications.

Respiratory respiatrios is important in the ICU, and, among all the techniques used in that environment, intermittent positive pressure appears as a device that may help increase lung volumes and optimize gas exchange. Regardless of the technique or device here employed, there is evidence that respiratory therapy is beneficial and efficient when applied to bed-ridden patients with respiratory mechanics alterations triggered by surgical procedures.

In our results, the most significant gain happened on the first day of therapy, when we observed a significant difference between D1 before and D1 after.

This suggests that respiratory therapy in early postoperative stages may prevent VC from staying too low and, consequently, prevent other pulmonary complications.

Despite a small decrease after therapy, there is still gain in pulmonary function. However, when comparing D1 to Ddis, the gain between the two moments was not as significant as on D1.

This is an extremely important point, since these patients present with altered respiratory mechanics and need respiratory and functional re-education in the postoperative period. In relation to patient functionality, rehabilitation was efficient in the gain of these measurements.


Initially, the patients showed decreased overall muscle strength, with consequent restriction of daily functions and, after rehabilitation, overall muscle strength showed significant improvement. Incentivaodres, in order to minimize risk of immobility caused by postoperative pain or complications, respiratory therapy promotes increase of muscle strength and improves functionality respiratrioss activities of daily life.

Muscle strength and functionality are directly related.

When a patient presents reduced muscle strength, decrease or loss of functionality occurs as a consequence. This has us considering that the improvement in VC was related to respiratory function optimization with lung volume and capacity increase, and not to the gain of overall muscle strength. A possible limitation of this study was due to the short ICU stay as a result of high patient turnover.

However, patients undergoing abdominal surgery may present changes in ventilatory mechanics immediately after surgery, which prompts pulmonary complications. Another limitation was the authorization by the medical staff to use of positive pressure in the postoperative period; however the proposed goal was reached.

The was incnetivadores correlation between vital capacity gain and respirartios Functional Independence Measure and the Medical Research Council scales, but the patients presented increased strength and functionality separately. This suggested that respiratory therapy aids in overall muscle strength improvement, with enhanced functionality, bringing more independence to the patients in their activities of daily life.
