NCT ID: NCT00224653 Completed - Obesity Clinical Trials

Comparison Between Volume Controlled Ventilation and Pressure Controlled Ventilation

Start date: January 2005
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

To assess the potential benefits on mechanical ventilation plateau pressure of pressure controlled mode versus volume controlled mode for laparoscopic bariatric surgery in obese patients (BMI > 35). High plateau pressures encountered in obese patients due to their reduced pulmonary compliance could be lowered using pressure controlled mechanical ventilation.
