Pulmonary Clearance

Pulmonary clearance, also known as pulmonary evaluation, is a critical step in the pre-operative assessment of bariatric surgery candidates. This assessment focuses on the health and functionality of the patient’s respiratory system. The primary objectives of pulmonary clearance are as follows:

  • Identify Pre-Existing Conditions: Assess conditions like asthma, COPD, or sleep apnea, which can heighten surgery risks.
  • Evaluate Lung Function: Measure lung capacity and efficiency to ensure the patient can tolerate the changes in breathing patterns that may occur following bariatric surgery.
  • Determine Anesthetic Risk: Evaluate the patient’s risk of anesthesia-related complications during the surgery.
  • Optimize Post-Operative Recovery: Assess the ability to recover post-surgery, as compromised lung function can hinder the healing process
