From: Recruitment pattern of the diaphragm and extradiaphragmatic inspiratory muscles in response to different levels of pressure support

Fig. 3

Relative onset, peak and termination times of extradiaphragmatic inspiratory muscle activity with respect to the onset time of diaphragm activity (time = 0 s). There are no differences in recruitment times between different PS levels; therefore, data are represented as median (interquartile range). For the alae nasi N = 61, genioglossus N = 43, sternocleidomastoid N = 69, scalene N = 70, parasternal intercostals N = 64 and diaphragm N = 72. *Significantly different with other muscles except alae nasi, $significantly different with other muscles except alae nasi and genioglossus, #significantly different with other muscles except intercostals and alae nasi (P < 0.05) . Inspiratory flow started significantly later than inspiratory muscle activity (P < 0.05)
