  1. SI, sustained inflation; sighs, rate per minute/target plateau pressure; Est, L, lung static elastance; mRNAPCIII, lung expression of mRAN of procollagen III.
  2. The arrows indicate the direction of change of each variable relative to the group of injured lungs not receiving recruitment maneuvers.
