ABSTRACT:
Objective: To assess the role of balloon spirometer as an aid for providing chest physiotherapy. Material and method: Data was collected from sixty cases of 18 to 60 years of age of both sexes, who underwent major abdominal surgery in a predrawn and pretested proforma. Findings and interpretation: On analysis it was recorded that in control group chest complications were in 60 % of cases in comparison to only in 13 % of cases in incentive spirometry group. At probability of 0.05 these complication rate was highly significant (p = 0.0001). Thus incentive chest physiotherapy proved beneficial in comparison to no physiotherapy. Recommendation: Authors recommend that in developing countries like India routine prophylactic Balloon type of chest physiotherapy can be used as an aid in preventing post pulmonary complications.
