Fig. 1

Normalized extracorporeal elimination of carbon dioxide (CO2) depending on blood flow and sweep gas flow with a membrane lung surface of 0.4m2 (a) and 0.8m2 (b). Normalized CO2 elimination was calculated by normalizing the partial pressure of carbon dioxide before the membrane lung to 45 mmHg. The normalized extracorporeal CO2 elimination was plotted against sweep gas flow. Blood flow was titrated from 300 to 900 mL/min (a) and 300 to 1800 mL/min (b). Each data point represents the mean and standard deviation among nine pigs
