The EIT-based Centre of Ventilation (CoV) within the lungs was evaluated at baseline and 10 minutes after applying three ventilation conditions: (1) zero endexpiratory pressure (ZEEP), (2) 5 cmH2O of PEEP without a recruitment maneuvre (RM) and (3) after a RM. A significant dorsal shift of the CoV was seen for the RM, but not for the other two conditions.
