  1. All values are expressed as median (first to third quartile) or as mean ± standard deviation. EVLW, extravascular lung water; EVLWa, extravascular lung water indexed to actual body weight; EVLWp, extravascular lung water indexed to predicted body weight; PaO2/FiO2, arterial partial pressure of oxygen/fraction of inspired oxygen.
