Adoption of Lung Protective ventilation IN patients undergoing Emergency laparotomy


What is ALPINE?
ALPINE (Adoption of Lung Protective ventilation IN patients undergoing Emergency laparotomy) is an observation study which PLAN aims to launch later in 2016. The study will determine how patients undergoing emergency abdominal surgery are currently being ventilated and to what extent protective lung ventilation has been adopted in this high-risk population. It also hopes to determine whether there is an outcome between mode of ventilation and development of post-operative pulmonary complications. ALPINE is working in collaboration with the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) and has already been awarded a competitive NIAA-AAGBI grant to aid implementation.
