End-expiratory lung volume.

<p>Changes in end-expiratory lung volume (ΔEELV) at individual measurement time points in comparison to baseline. The median, the 25th and the 75th percentile, minimum and maximum values of ten animals are shown. The gray areas in the diagram show the positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) values during the individual time points. Significant differences between the measurements are indicated. Left Y axis: ΔEELV, right Y axis: PEEP. High V<sub>T</sub>, ventilation with 10 ml/kg BW, low V<sub>T</sub>, ventilation with 5 ml/kg BW.</p>
