Table 2 Peak, plateau pressure and perfusate lactate, pCO2 and pH values between both groups

From: Flow-controlled ventilation during EVLP improves oxygenation and preserves alveolar recruitment

  VCV (n = 7) median with IQR FCV (n = 7) median with IQR p value (Mann–Whitney)
Peak pressures at 6 h EVLP 20 (17–25) cm H2O 22 (20–27) cm H2O p = 0.51
Plateau pressures at 6 h EVLP 8 (8–9) cm H2O
Intratracheal pressures at 6 h EVLP 22 (20–27) cm H2O
pCO2 at 6 h EVLP ‘inflow’ (pulmonary artery) 42 (40–43) mmHg 41 (39–44) mmHg p > 0.99
pCO2 at 6 h EVLP ‘outflow’ (left atrium) 36 (35–39) mmHg 37 (36–39) mmHg p = 0.38
pH at 6 h EVLP outflow 7.40 (7.39–7.41) 7.38 (7.37–7.40) p = 0.23
Lactate at 6 h EVLP outflow 12 (11–13) mg/dL 13 (13–14) mg/dL p = 0.18
