  1. Numbers (percentage) or median (interquartile range), where appropriate. Abbreviations: ABDC = amphotericin B deoxycholate; PEEP = positive end-expiratory pressure; PaO2 = partial pressure of oxygen in the blood (kPa); FIO2 = the percentage of oxygen administered; LIS = lung injury score; day 1 and 7 refer to day of first isolation of Candida spp. in respiratory secretions and 1 week later, respectively.
