Hemodynamic data was recorded at three successive tidal volumes (VT of 6, 8, and 10 mL/kg) during zero end-expiratory pressure (ZEEP) and after the addition of 10 cm H2O PEEP for each VT and hemodynamically instable (HI) patients were defined as those with >15% decrease in CI after the addition of PEEP.
