A strategy PICO was used, were elected: (P) Respiratory Insufficiency OR Hypoxia E (I) Airway Management OR Respiratory Exercises AND (C) Breathing, Artificial Ventilation OR Noninvasive OR Positive Pressure Breathing And (O) Breathing . How the 10 articles (from 63 retrieved) were selected that contributed with a resolution of the research problem and with the knowledge of its content and reliability. The evaluation of the study was carried out with the objective of evaluating the evolutions for the treatment of patients with foot disease, evaluation of patients with respiratory insufficiency, the realization of a multiprofessional evaluation and the creation of a multidisciplinary protocol. guide care.
