Progress of iASV. PEEP and FiO2 were selected as additional automatic settings in iASV, over and above %MV, and continuous ventilation. Using the automatic setting of iASV, PEEP was set at 14 mmHg against the decrease in oxygenation capacity, and FiO2 and PEEP gradually increased concurrently to reach a FiO2 value of 0.6. FiO2 fell notably after recovery of oxygenation capacity, while PEEP gradually decreased after FiO2 reached 0.3. During this time, the driving pressure (ΔP) obtained by subtracting PEEP from the intake plateau pressure was below 10 cm H2O
