Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

We aim to determine the effectiveness and safety of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV), that is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bilevel NPPV, in preventing mortality compared to standard therapy (oxygen therapy) and determine the incidence of tracheal intubation in adult patients with acute respiratory failure after upper abdominal surgery.

As a secondary objective we will determine the gasometric alterations, hospital and ICU length of stay, gastric insufflation and wound dehiscence.
