  1. Values are expressed as mean ± SD
  2. p > 0.05 was considered statistically non-significant comparison between the two study groups after surgery
  3. p < 0.001 was considered statistically significant in the same group between after and before surgery
  4. *This is as regards all pulmonary functions except for SpO2
