The original article was published in Critical Care 2010 14:R105

After publication of our article [1], we noticed errors in Tables 2 and 3. Under the 'Weight' column in Table 2, decimal points should have been included in this data.

Values of several measurements

Variable

Value

MAP (mmHg)

65 (57 to 76)

Heart rate (bpm)

139 (118 to 153)

Cardiac index (l/min/m2)

4.00 (3.17 to 5.19)

GEDVI (ml/m2)

432 (369 to 528)

EVLWI (ml/kg)

16 (13 to 21)

Chest x-ray score

133 (90 to 204)

A-a gradient (mmHg)

119 (74 to 168)

PaO2/FiO2 (mmHg)

283 (226 to 374)

PEEP (cmH2O)

6 (5 to 8)

Median (interquartile range).

For Table 3, the interquartile value for EVLWI should read 13 to 21 instead of 13 to 121.

The descriptions of the tables in the article are unchanged, and the corrected tables are provided here (Table 2 overleaf).
