  1. Note. All data on edema formation are given as mean (CV). Definition of abbreviations and symbols: V = volume; Open par = Non-atelectatic parenchyma; Air = parenchymal airspace; Ed = alveolar edema; Sept = alveolar septum; At = atelectasis; Pbv = peribronchovascular space; * = p < 0.05 vs. control; † = p < 0.05 vs. Celsior.
