Figure 5: Changes of PaCO2 in different positions after thoracotomy In group I, the PaCO2 was significantly higher in LLD than in RLD and supine. In group II, there were no prominent PaCO2 changes in different positions. The PaCO2 changes were similar in right thoracotomy (groups III and IV). *Significantly different from control, P < 0.05; †Significantly different from RLD, P < 0.05; #Comparison of the same positions between groups I vs. II and groups III vs. IV, P < 0.05
