  1. aP < 0.05 compared with T0; bP < 0.05 compared with T20/30; Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation.
  2. PiCCO™ = Pulse Contour Cardiac Output Monitor; T0 = time at baseline; T20/30 = time when positive end-expiratory pressure at 20 cmH2O and driving pressure at 30 cmH2O; TOLP = time at open lung-positive end-expiratory pressure.
