Table 2 Physiological characteristics of the study patients at baseline

From: Plasma cell-free DNA in patients needing mechanical ventilation

  All patients (N = 580)
PaO 2 /FiO 2 -ratio 247 (172, 338)
Tidal volume/Predicted body weight 8.6 (7.5, 9.9)
PEEP 6 (5, 8)
MAP 76 (67, 86)
CVP 9 (7, 13)
MV (intubated) 485 (84%)
Vasopressors 304 (52%)
  1. Data are presented in numbers (percentages) or median (interquartile range).
  2. CVP, central venous pressure; MAP, mean arterial pressure; MV, mechanical ventilation; PEEP, positive end expiratory pressure
