  1. Data are means ± SD.
  2. HR: heart rate; MAP: mean arterial pressure; CVP: central venous pressure; Hct: hematocrit; SpO2: arterial oxygen saturation; PO2: arterial partial pressure of oxygen; PCO2: arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide.
  3. *P < 0.05: comparison between group C and A.
