Figure 4

Ventilation/Perfusion Distribution (V A /Q) measured by MMIMS-MIGET. VA/Q ratios were defined as follows: shunt (VA/Q < 0.005), low VA/Q (0.005 < VA/Q < 0.1), normal VA/Q (0.1 < VA/Q < 10), high VA/Q (10 < VA/Q > 100). Group effects over time are analyzed by two-way-ANOVA and post-hoc Holm-Sidak procedure. n.s. = non-significant, PSV: pressure support ventilation, VCV: volume-controlled ventilation.
