Findings and interpretation

On analysis it was recorded that in control group chest complications was in 60% of cases in comparison to only in 13% of cases in incentive spirometry group. At probability of 0.05 these complication rate was highly significant (p = 0.0001). Thus incentive chest physiotherapy proved beneficial in comparison to no physiotherapy
