THE article by Musch et al.  entitled “Mechanism by Which a Sustained Inflation Can Worsen Oxygenation in Acute Lung Injury” was published in the February issue of the Journal (Anesthesiology 2004; 100:323–30) with figures 3 and 4presented in poor quality. These figures are reprinted here in corrected form. The publisher regrets the error.
Fig. 3. Regional lung function before (filled bars  ) and after (open bars  ) the recruitment maneuver (RM) in nondependent (ND), middle (M), and dependent (D) regions. (A  ) Mean-normalized gas fraction (FG) decreased from the ND to the D region. (B)  The fraction of imaged pulmonary blood flow that was shunted in each region (FQS) increased from the ND to the D region. The RM further increased FQSin the D region. (C  ) The fraction of imaged pulmonary flood flow going to each region (FG) increased from the ND to the D region. The RM decreased perfusion to the M region and shifted it to the D region. Data are mean ± SD *P  < 0.05, **P  < 0.01 between ND, M, and D regions before the RM, §P  < 0.05 before versus  after the RM.

Fig. 4. Correlation between Pao2and fractional shunted blood flow (FQS) in the dependent region. The dashed curve  represents the regression relation for all 10 data points (PaO2= 9.3 ×[FQS]−1.8). Symbols for each animal are as in figure 2. As shown by the arrows  , in each animal, PaO2decreased and FQSin the dependent region increased from before (filled symbols  ) to after (open symbols  ) the recruitment maneuver. The lines  connecting the individual data points corresponding to each animal have approximately the same slope as the dashed curve  . This suggests that the effect of the recruitment maneuver PaO2could be largely explained by its effect on FQSin the dependent region.
