[…] Statistical analyses used SPSS version 13.0 (SPSS, Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). Figures were graphed using SigmaPlot 12.0 software (Systat software, Inc., San Jose, CA, USA) and GraphPad Prism 5.0 software (GraphPad Software, Inc., San Diego, CA, USA). The significance level for all tests was set to 0.05. The concentrations of EBPs were calculated based on 5-minute averages. Furthermore, the figures for PEEP level were assigned to a high level group (>5 cmH2O) and a low level group (≤5 cmH2O) using the median as the cutoff. The figures for tidal volume were also classified into high (>500 mL) and low (≤500 mL) level groups using the median as the cutoff. The nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests for non-normally distributed data were used to identify group differences in continuous variables. […]
