Pulmonary function may be impaired in connection with laparoscopic surgery, especially in the head-down body position, but the clinical importance has not been assessed in detail. The aim of this study was to assess pulmonary function after laparoscopic hysterectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We hypothesised that arterial oxygenation would be more impaired after hysterectomy performed in the head-down position than after cholecystectomy in the head-up position.
