Changes in end-expiratory lung impedance (delta EELI). Data are given in arbitrary units (a.u.) presented as mean (error bars indicate standard error of the mean) compared to baseline measurements (NMB) after neuromuscular blockade, (PDT) after tracheotomy and (RM) after a subsequent recruitment maneuver, n = 29. Mean changes were significantly different from baseline values in dorsal lung parts after PDT (p = 0.01) and in ventral parts after the recruitment maneuver (p = 0.01), RM ANOVA
