Monika Dede [3] | Juliana Karanxha [4] | Mirjeta Guni [4]

Abstract: The objective is to identify risk factors that determine pneumonia development in patients who have undergone cardiac surgery. Prospective study of a single cohort in a postoperative intensive care unit at a tertiary care centre, encompassing all patients undergoing cardiac surgery from March 1, 2017 to December 30, 2020.20postoperative pneumonia cases were enrolled out of 543 patients (3.7%). Significant independent predictors of pneumonia were found COPD and EF. Given the incidence of post discharge pneumonia, efforts also should be directed towards identifying high risk patients and developing and evaluating transitional programs to address this issue.
