Postoperative Pulmonary Complications (POPCs) are major causes of morbidity and mortality particularly within the first postoperative week. The reported incidence ranges from 5% to 80%, depending on the patient population, the type of surgery, the presence of risk factors and the definitions used. It has been estimated that more than 1 million POPCs occur annually in the United States (US), within 46,200 related deaths and 4.8 million additional hospitalization days.
