  1. PaO2/FiO2= arterial partial pressure of oxygen to inspired fraction of oxygen ratio. PEEP=Positive End Expiratory Pressure, TAPSE (Tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion) and S’ (Velocity of the tricuspid annular systolic motion). All the results are shown as Average ± Standard Deviation. * significant compared to Baseline p<0.05; ^ significant compared to Incremental p<0.05.
