Especially in perioperative phases, there are still too many departments where instead of using insulin for continuous infusion, as is universally recommended, the hyperglycemic phase is undertaken with an IV insulin bolus or, worse still, a subcutaneous bolus, thus promoting inacceptable and dangerous variability in glycemia. Even other drugs used to treat diabetes have been found to be useful in the prevention of ALI: we refer to metformin, rosiglitazone, ACE inhibitors, and statins [27]. The latter in particular are capable of contrasting vascular permeability and inflammation [28].

The loss of muscular tone correlates with the reduction in FRC, due to the shift of the equilibrium point of the respiratory system toward lower volumes and to the cephalic displacement of the diaphragm. These changes are not completely reversible at the awakening, in fact a 40 % reduction in Vital Capacity (VC) and a decreased forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) can persist for more than a week after surgery [10]. Muscular dysfunction can be present even after 7 days from operation, entailing a reduction of tidal volume (Vt) and maximal forced expiratory flow [11].

There is much evidence in favor of the fact that cTn elevation may indicate, often briefly, reversible damage alone. Transient increases in cTn observed in triathlon and marathon athletes are indicative of this, as are those observed in patients with pulmonary embolisms [6]. We have already discussed the predictive value of BNP. In particular, the association of cTn and BNP is now considered useful in predicting the ischemic risk [7]. The ischemic risk in patients with COPD has already been outlined.
