Because of the lack of adherence to CPAP, many new features have been added including heated humidification, broad pressure adjustments, and expiratory pressure relief; while many of these features mildly improve patients' preferences, there is no evidence to suggest that these changes improve efficacy or adherence.

Echocardiographic examination is difficult in the postoperative period due to poor acoustic windows, hemodynamic instability, and mechanical ventilation with use of high PEEP end expiratory pressure.
Maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximal expiratory pressure (MEP) are global measures of maximal strength of respiratory muscles and they are respectively the greater pressure which may be generated during maximal inspiration and expiration against an occluded airway (3).
