Abstract To test the hypotheses that during small tidal volume ventilation (5 mL/kg) deliberate volume recruitment maneuvers allow expansion of atelectatic lung units and that a high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) above the lower inflection point of the pressure/volume (PV) curve is not necessarily required to maintain recruited lung volume in acute lung injury.
