Abstract

Laparoscopy with standard CO2 (STCO2) insufflation has been postulated to contribute to perioperative hypothermia, cardiorespiratory alterations, peritoneal irritation, and postoperative pain. Hypothermia has numerous detrimental complications including organ failure, immunosuppression, prolonged recovery, and coagulopathy. The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of warmed, humidified carbon dioxide (WHCO2) pneumoperitoneum on core body temperature, cardiorespiratory variables, thromboelastography, systemic inflammation, peritoneal response, and postoperative pain in healthy, mature, dogs undergoing laparoscopy. No clinically significant differences were reported in any of the variables measured. These data suggest the use of WHCO2 for pneumoperitoneum in healthy, mature, dogs undergoing laparoscopy did not differ from the use of STCO2.
