Figure 3

Myocardial function ex vivo (LPS=lipopolysaccharide; LVt=low tidal volume (V t ) ventilation, HVt=high V t ventilation). A. Left ventricular (LV) systolic pressure. B. LV diastolic pressure. C. LV developed pressure decreased by the interaction between LPS installation and HVt ventilation. D. LV contractility, measured as +dP/dtmax, decreased by the interaction between LPS installation and HVt ventilation. E. LV relaxation, measured as –dP/dtmin, decreased by the interaction between LPS installation and HVt ventilation. F. LV pCa50.
