Box and Whisker Plots show the 25th percentile and 75th percentile (upper and lower limit of the box, respectively), the median and extreme values (upper and lower limit of the vertical bar). 15D=low pressure-low volume MV in dorsal recumbency; 30D=high pressure-high volume MV in dorsal recumbency; 15L=low pressure-low volume MV in lateral recumbency; 30L=high pressurehigh volume MV in lateral recumbency; T0=at the beginning of mechanical ventilation; T1=after 60 minutes of mechanical ventilation
