Title:
Incentive Spirometry Use Following Abdominal Surgery
Authors:
Barry, James; Marsden, Stacy; Stewart, Jill
Abstract:
The literature review was performed to answer the question, “For post-operative abdominal surgery patients does the use of an incentive spirometer reduce the risk of pulmonary complications compared with a regimen of deep breathing exercises?” Determining whether IS or DBE use is more effective could play a significant role in the reduction of morbidity and mortality, improving health outcomes, and reducing health costs following abdominal surgery.
