Summary of results obtained in all 10 pigs during the incremental positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) trial. Left number of pixels in overinflated (black solid line), recruited (blue broken line) and tidally recruited/derecruited (red broken line) regions divided by total number of lung pixels in percentage (medians and half interquartile ranges). Recruited regions were calculated compared to a PEEP of 6 cmH2O. The partial pressure of O2 in arterial blood/fraction of inspired oxygen (PaO 2 /FiO 2 ) ratio (blue stars) and respiratory system compliance (Crs, red circles) are presented as median and half-interquartile ranges
