Study looking at how much oxygen patients should receive during major surgery
Anaesthetists are advised to give patients high amounts of oxygen during surgery to lower patient’s risk of getting wound infections, but some evidence suggests this could cause more harm than good. This study looks at how much oxygen patients should receive to minimise the risks of surgery.
We are looking for people who have previously had major surgery and would like to help improve the care of future surgical patients by becoming a Research Partner and joining the study steering group.
