Summary The previously unexplored trajectory of postoperative pulmonary dysfunction was mapped in adults having cardiac surgery. Factors including hypoxaemia, positive fluid balance, severe pain and impaired functional status were associated with the development of pulmonary dysfunction and pneumonia. These antecedents are amenable to treatment in the form of prompt preventative nursing intervention that has a fundamental influence on patient outcome.
