Fig. 1

Representative pressure-volume relationship during constant inspiratory flow showing the areas that define the driving power (area A), elastic (dynamic) power (areas A + B), and total power (areas A + B + C). Ppeak, respiratory system peak pressure; PRes, respiratory system resistive pressure; Pplat, respiratory system end-inspiratory (plateau) pressure; ΔP, driving pressure; PEEP, positive end-expiratory pressure; VT, tidal volume; RR, respiratory rate; VE, minute ventilation; C, compliance
