Research objective to compare outcomes (shoulder pain score, wound pain score, post-operative residual pneumoperitoneum, lung complication, GI discomfort, administered additional analgesics, time to hospital staying) of using Pulmonary Recruitment maneuver with pressure 30 cmH2O, 40 cm H2O and control group in women with post laparoscopic gynecologic surgery in Rajavithi hospital.


Research design is Randomized control trial. The women who go to laparoscopic gynecologic surgery don't know the allocation. Women will be randomizes in to 3 group: PRM 30 cmH2O, 40 cmH2O and control

After laparoscopic surgery has finished in operator room (before moving off trocar), woman all group will be set in Trenderlenberg position (Tilted head low) and then surgeon will compress abdomen to release residual gas after operation about 2 minutes.

The patients in group of using Pulmonary Recruitment Maneuver will be received positive pressure from balloon bag from anesthesiologist 5 times of setting pressure [30 cmH2O, 40 cmH2O], 5 seconds per time to increase indirect abdominal pressure to release residual gas

After surgery at 12, 24 and 48 hours, patients will be follow up and evaluate shoulder and wound pain. Chest X-ray will be done to evaluate residual pneumoperitoneum and lung complication. GI discomfort, administered additional analgesics and time to hospital staying will be evaluated and recorded.
