Clinical Utility of Preoperative Pulmonary Function Testing in Pediatrics

This article summarizes the utility of available pulmonary function assessment tools as preoperative tests in improving post-anesthetic outcomes. Currently, there is no evidence to support or discourage any pulmonary function assessment as a routine preoperative test for children undergoing anesthesia. In addition, there is uncertainty about which patients with the known or suspected respiratory disease require preoperative pulmonary function tests, what time period prior to surgery these are required, and whether spirometry or more sophisticated tests are indicated. Therefore, the need for any test should be based on information obtained from the history and examination, the child's age, and the complexity of the surgery.PMID:34875135 | DOI:10.1111/pan.14356
