Table 3. Cardiovascular and Respiratory Variables of Patients Undergoing Intraperitoneal or Left or Right Retroperitoneal CO2Insufflation
Data are means ± SD from 20 anesthetized patients undergoing either intraperitoneal (n = 8) or left (n = 6) or right (n = 6) retroperitoneal (prone position) CO2insufflation. P values in parenthesis derive from two-way (insufflation pressure × group) analysis of variance for repeated measurements within and across groups, respectively, as appropriate.
*P < 0.05 versus group baseline.
P < 0.05 for comparison between groups at same insufflation pressure.
ANOVA = analysis of variance; NS = not significant.
