Table 2 Baseline characteristics

From: Prolonged prone positioning under VV-ECMO is safe and improves oxygenation and respiratory compliance

PaO2/FiO2 (mmHg) 111 (84–128)
PaCO2 (mmHg) 42 (39–43)
Tidal volume (ml/kg) 3.0 (2.2–4.0)
Arterial pH 7.42 (7.39–7.44)
PEEP (cmH2O) 12 (6–13)
Plateau pressure (cmH2O) 24 (22–25)
RS compliance (ml/cmH2O) 18 (12–36)
Respiratory frequency (cycles/min) 17 (10–25)
ECMO settings
 FiO2 (%) 70 (70–90)
 ECMO blood flow (l/min) 4.7 (3.7–5.5)
 Sweep gas (l/min) 5.0 (3.0–5.0)
