Balloon transmural pressure under all bench conditions. Balloon transmural pressure (P TM) at minimal (V MIN) and maximal balloon inflating volume (V MAX) under atmosphere (black) and end-expiratory (blue) and end-inspiratory occlusion (red) during simulated passive ventilation. All P TM were within ±1 cmH2O. Mean and standard deviation are also shown
