Regions that were identified as overdistended (white), recruited (blue) and tidally recruited/derecruited (red) during the incremental positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) trial in one pig. PEEP increased from 9 to 30 cmH2O. Recruited regions were calculated compared to a PEEP of 6 cmH2O. Lung regions are outlined in yellow. Percentage values at the bottom of each sub-figure were calculated by dividing theabsolute number of pixels of the different conditions by the total number of lung pixels
