CACERES, Sergio; BERTAUX, Olivier  and  PORRAS, Ignacio. Respiratory complications in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery in adults. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2020, vol.35, n.3, pp.322-361.  Epub Dec 01, 2020. ISSN 0797-0048.

All patients who undergo cardiac surgery develop respiratory disorders in the postoperative period. It is very important to implement all measures to minimize the impact of these alterations. The real challenge consists in the early detection of complications and the development of early therapeutic strategies in order to minimize their impact. In the present study, the main respiratory complications in the postoperative setting of cardiac surgery, and the corresponding therapeutic actions, are analyzed.
