  1. The results are expressed as a number (%), the mean ± standard deviation or the median (25–75%)
  2. BMI, body mass index; SOFA, Sequential Organ Failure Assessment; SAPS 3, Simplified Acute Physiology Score 3; PEEP, positive end-expiratory pressure; PaO2, arterial oxygen partial pressure; FiO2, oxygen inspired fraction; Cstat, static compliance; ICU, intensive care unit; LOS, length of stay
  3. aSOFA was calculated on the study day, b based on predicted body weight
