Analysing and fusing data from the medical devices of different disciplines (anaesthesiology and surgery) inside the operating rooms may promote awareness during surgical procedures. In this work, the changes of physiological parameters of patients undergoing laparoscopic gynaecology procedures were analysed. The statistical relationship between the intra-abdominal pressure and airway peak pressure was evaluated. Patients ventilated with pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) and intermittent mandatory ventilation (IMV) were included. The results demonstrated that increasing the intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) resulted in increasing the airway peak pressure and decreasing the lung compliance. The Pearson correlation coefficient between the IAP and the airway peak pressure was 0.910 in PCV-patients and 0.952 in IMV-patients when changes of the ventilation settings were considered. Additionally, major hemodynamic changes included alterations in the mean blood pressure (MBP), where the MBP increased after insufflating the abdomen and decreased after abdomen deflation.
